Netul Landing ...
Netul Landing is located on the Lewis and Clark River at Fort Clatsop. Originally the canoe landing for Lewis and Clark, the landing continued to be used long after Lewis and Clark had departed. During the summers of 1860-1862, the United States Revenue Service docked their cutter for maintenance at the landing. Travelers to the coast would take ships from Portland or Astoria to the Fort Clatsop landing and then take a carriage or horse to Seaside. In 1862, the Oregon Steam and Navigation Company established a regular summer service from Portland to Fort Clatsop, and in 1875, William Smith sold 5 acres along the river to the company. While the Stevensons were tenants at Fort Clatsop, they ran a carriage service from the landing to Seaside. By 1900, however, new transportation routes to meet the needs of the increasing numbers of tourists eliminated the Fort Clatsop route. The Oregon Steam Navigation Company had become the Oregon Railroad and Navigation Company, and continued to own the five-acre parcel along the river. In 2005 the Netul Landing site was developed and is now part of the Lewis and Clark National Historic Park.

Sacagawea Bronze ...
This life-size bronze sculpture of Sacagawea and her son Pomp was created by Jim Demetro, of Battle Ground, Washington. Sacagawea and her husband, Toussaint Charbonneau, were hired on by Lewis and Clark to be translators.

"... While Sacagawea did not speak English, she spoke Shoshone and Hidatsa. Her husband Charbonneau spoke Hidatsa and French. In effect, Sacagawea and Charbonneau would become an intepreter team. As Clark explained in his journals, Charbonneau was hired “as an interpreter through his wife.” If and when the expedition met the Shoshones, Sacagawea would talk with them, then translate to Hidatsa for Charbonneau, who would translate to French. The Corps’ Francois Labiche spoke French and English, and would make the final translation so that the two English-speaking captains would understand. ..."
