Our Victorian home is located on the Historic Homes Walking Tour. Nearby are the Maritime Museum, Heritage Museum, Columbia Lightship, and 100 year old churches. Ships from all over the world dock in Astoria's harbor, some allow tours. Astoria is located just a few short hours from Seattle, Portland, Newport, and Corvallis. An excellent place to pause and enjoy the local history, with ocean beaches and mountain hikes just minutes away.
Golfing, clam-digging, beach coming, surfing, fishing and boating are all just a short drive away. You can hike to the Astoria Column, watch the boats drift down the Columbia, stroll about town and visit the various galleries and cafes, or simply sit while bird or cloud watching.
While tall ships yet plied the Columbia River and salmon runs were plentiful, Eben Tallant and his brother, Nathan Tallant, came to Astoria to build a salmon packing cannery much larger than the cannery in Eagle Cliff, Washington had been, before it burned down in a horrible fire.
Andrew Ferguson designed the Eben Tallant family residence at 682 Arch street in the Richardson Shingle style. Features of the house are: a bullet turret, inset balconies, open staircase, and beautiful bay windows. Our Northwest tower, now capped with an open balcony, makes one feel as a captain on the prow of a ship as the house steers toward the Columbia River mouth. Perhaps this feeling is not accidental. Eben Tallant was, in fact, the first officer on the Clipper, "Golden State", and held the same position on the passenger ship, "John Bright" plying the China Sea, between Shanghai and Hong Kong.
Divided into eight apartments for over forty years, the Tallant home is now owned by the Maxwells and is known as
