LCPS Architectural Heritage Tour

Lower Columbia Preservation Society preserves our history, culture, livability and sense of place by protecting historic structures and sites, promoting active stewardship of historic properties and supporting preservation education.


We have designed this app to allow you to explore Astoria's built environment, organized by architects. Users will learn about the lives and work of each architect and experience changes in technique, materials and design during their careers.


We suggest you pick one architect at a time and explore their work in chronological order. You can choose an architect by clicking on the "ARCHS" tab at the bottom of this page. You will be provided with biographical information about the architect, their professional associations, and be given a list of suggested sites to visit.


*Please be respectful of property owners. If a site is not a public space, please view from the public right of way.


**Please follow social distancing protocol while using these tours.
