Astoria, Oregon, founded as a business venture in 1811, is the oldest U.S. settlement in the West. But its creation cost dozens of lives, and it never became the fur-trading hub of the Pacific. Just two years later, its founders sold Astoria to the British and went back to New York. Over time, that tiny first settlement evolved into a boat and ship-building center, a successful timber town and the salmon-canning capital of the world.
