Historic Uniontown Walking Tour

September 15, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Uniontown was established in the 1880s by Finnish immigrants who came to the Pacific Northwest to work in the booming salmon fishing industry. Astoria had the largest Finnish population west of the Rocky Mountains and was known as the “Helsinki of the West”. The commercial and nearby residential neighborhoods remained mostly Finnish through the first half of the 20th century and still today retain some of their working-class vibe. We will have a chance to view the interior of Suomi Hall where the Finnish Brotherhood/Sisterhood still meets.

This narrated walking tour covers about 12 blocks on hard surface with one steep ascent and descent The tour will run about 2 hours.

Suggested donation of $10.
