Fort Astoria ...
In 1956 a replica Fort Astoria's blockhouse was constructed on the site of the early fort. Since 1956 three murals depicting the fort of 1813 have been painted on the side of a building at the site of the blockhouse. The second mural was removed in late 1980s when the wall was repaired. The last mural, painted in 2003 by local artists Roger McKay and Sally Lackaff, extends 100 feet around the 1956 recreation of the Fort's blockhouse.
