Louise Whitewater stepped aboard the Old 300 Riverfront Trolley in Astoria, Oregon, Sunday. She was welcomed by Mayor Willis Van Dusen and the City Council as the 500,000th passenger.
Louise, a former Astoria resident, was in town for a doctor’s appointment when she was greeted at the stop by the Columbia River Maritime Museum with gifts and a series of “hip, hip, hoorays.”
The trolley was built in 1913 by the American Car Company of St. Louis, Missouri and was restored in Astoria in 1999.
