The Astoria Column is a tower overlooking the mouth of the Columbia River in Coxcomb Hill in the city of Astoria in Oregon, west of the United States. The column which is 125 feet (38 m) tall, has a spiral staircase with 164 steps which leads up to a viewing platform at the top. It was inducted into the National Register of Historic Places on May 2, 1974. The photo shown was taken at the top of the Column where the Astoria–Megler Bridge can be seen in the distance.
