N. Oregon Coast October: Astoria Events Preview
(Astoria, Oregon) – There's just something a little extra in atmosphere about the north Oregon coast town of Astoria in this season of things that go bump in the night. Being the oldest town west of the Mississippi, the place has its shares of haunts and rumors of ghosties.
