The Fairmount Neighborhood owes its name and many of its unique characteristics to a short-lived 19th-century development known as Fairmount City. Annexed into the city of Eugene in 1902, this development’s legacy is preserved in generously-sized residential lots, the curvilinear design of Fairmount Boulevard, and a large neighborhood park- part of which was later incorporated into Hendricks Park. The Fairmount Neighborhood has since ascended into the forested hills to the south and east, and is now contiguous with adjacent Eugene neighborhoods. Many residents enjoy the easy walking distance to several commercial districts featuring conveniences such as restaurants, groceries, bakeries, pet care, auto repair, and more. Fairmount is also just east of the University of Oregon Campus.

Friendly Area

The Friendly Area Neighborhood is named for Friendly Street, that bisects the neighborhood from North to South. The street was named for Sam Friendly, a much-loved 19th century mayor of Eugene, and one of the far-sighted individuals who secured the location of the University of Oregon for Eugene. His direct descendant was Fred Friendly, the internationally renowned broadcast journalist. This neighborhood encompasses a wide range of architectural and personal styles. Residents of the Friendly Area Neighborhood love to garden and this common thread of love and pride is visible on every street. The street trees that flourish were planted, in part, through the efforts of the Friendly Area Neighbors Association (FAN).
