The Astoria Victory Monument, also known as the Doughboy Monument or Soldiers' Monument, is a monument located in Astoria, Oregon, in the United States. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The concrete, Spanish Revival monument designed by Charles T. Diamond was constructed in 1926.[2] John Paulding was the engineer.[3] The structure was recognized individually by the National Register of Historic Places in 1984 and as part of the Uniontown-Alameda Historic District in 1988.

History[edit]

A bronze statue of an infantryman tops the monument.

The National Register of Historic Places recognized the monument individually on November 15, 1984,[4] and later included the structure as part of the Uniontown-Alameda Historic District on August 25, 1988.[2][5]

In the mid-2000s, the monument received a $10,000 grant from the State Historic Preservation Office to repair lights and windows, replace doors, renovate the restroom facilities and install new plumbing and toilet fixtures.[6]
