On Tuesday, from 2 to 3 p.m. there will be a rare opportunity to tour the Armory building in downtown Astoria, on the corner of 17th and Duane streets, across from the Moose Lodge. The Columbia River Maritime Museum is selling this historic structure, which is a unique multiuse complex unlike anything in the Columbia Pacific region.

Creating a “Friends of the Armory” is my goal, so that we can preserve this amazing community asset for multiple uses and events – some of which would be economic drivers for us here. Hope to see you Tuesday.
