Latest Hayhurst Homes
The first group of people to settle in the Hayhurst neighborhood were pioneers from the mid-west. They settled here in the mid-1800’s when the area was heavily forested and wild. At this time Hayhurst was part of the larger community of Hillsdale.
Hayhurst is a low-key, quiet neighborhood. It has changed with the times but still holds on to its rural flavor. It has preserved many old trees, green spaces, and sensitive environmental areas. Many of the families have lived in the neighborhood for more than 20 years and can trace their ancestry to early pioneers in the area.
To the north by Beaverton-Hillsdale Hwy, Hayhurst residents can drive into downtown Portland in less than 20 minutes. In the western part of the neighborhood is Alpenrose Dairy (1916), a community institution featuring a velodrome, baseball park, and replica western frontier town (“Dairyville”).
Pendleton Park is a green space with a playground, a baseball diamond, the Vermont Hills Community Garden, and an 8-foot rabbit entitled Vincent, Waiting for Alice. It is adjacent to Hayhurst Elementary School.
