The Goose Hollow Foothills League Neighborhood Association is host to five historic residential communities. (map) These consist of an uptown area of older brick apartment houses and residential hotels, mixed with commercial and light industrial activities that we have called the Lownsdale area. Another area called Kings Hill once hosted the residences of Portland's turn of the century wealthier merchants, now partly infilled with higher density apartments and offices.
Goose Hollow itself, is the site of a pond, long since drained, that was the primary residence for a substantial goose population in the late nineteenth century. It is an outskirt of downtown that mixed commercial, residential, industrial, and highway commercial activities in an area that had been family farms and Portland suburbs before the automobile.
