Fort Columbia Historical State Park is 1.7 mi. e. on US 101. Part of Lewis and Clark National Historical Park, this site is one of three military posts established at the mouth of the Columbia River during the Spanish-American War.

An interpretive center features historical displays. A half-mile stroll passes some of the fort's most interesting historic installations, and there is a hiking trail at Scarboro Hill.
