Using archival photographs and interviews with residents, this video traces the history and culture of the Finnish community in Astoria, Oregon, focusing on Uniontown (sometimes called "Finn Town" in the old days), the community on the west side of Astoria where most Finns settled when they immigrated from Finland. Presented by Arnie Hummasti.
