Between Rainier and Westport Highway 30 swings away from the Columbia River. In that stretch you will find Clatskanie. The road follows the Clatskanie river thru town giving "main" street a pleasant sweeping effect. "In 1810, Captain Nathan Winship established the first settlement in Columbia County along the Columbia River, across from what is now known as Oak Point, Washington. Because of the unfriendliness of the Tlatskanai and local flooding, Winship was forced to abandon this location and relocate further down river." Taken from the www.clatskanie.com web site.
