Astoria-Megler Ferry and Landing

These are two pictures in my collection of the Astoria-Megler Ferry and Landing in Oregon. Both are from different photographers and several years apart. Both show a piece of Oregon and Washington history that is missing now. The Astoria-Megler Ferry crossed the mouth of the Columbia River between Astoria Oregon and McGown Washington. After a merger, the north ferry dock was moved to Megler Washington because it was a better port for the ferry. The Ferry ran until the construction of the Astoria-Megler Bridge made it obsolete.

Astoria still exists as a quite popular tourist and supply town for the North West Oregon and South West Washington Coast. But nothing remains of Megler except for the ferry dock pilings and a wide spot in the road where cars waited for the ferry to dock.
