More about the Glenmorrie Subdivision
Glenmorrie is a luxury community in Lake Oswego Oregon just south of the lake and on the west side of the Willamette River. It's bordered by Hallinan, Skyland and the Mary's Woods retirement community or the Village at Mary's Woods. The community stretches on both sides of Highway 43 or S. Hood Ave. and Pacific Highway. It is primarily a residential community but it borders the Hallinan Elementary School and is seconds from downtown Lake Oswego and the lake. Many homes along old River Road feature beautiful views of the river but technically there are no waterfront homes in Glenmorrie.
This charming neighborhood just south of downtown offers a rich history, family-friendly neighbors, and lots of trees. It was originally developed to the end of the 19th century as a country estate for P.F. Morey, a prominent Portland businessman and founder of Portland General Electric. It's home to about 200 homesites surrounded by natural spaces, beautiful trees, the river, parks, and gorgeous mountain views.
Trees are definitely a prominent landmark in Glenmorrie. In 1960, the president of the Glenmorrie Cooperative Association, John C Kuhns stated that "almost 3/4 of a century ago, Mr. P Fred Morey, then president of the Portland General Electric Company, selected a 600-acre tract, comprising the present Glenmorrie community, for a country home and farm. He built a spacious mansion, stables, and other outbuildings." - [Source]
As time went on, many roads were graded and rustic bridges were built, many orchards were planted, and a water system was installed. Access to the home was by the Old River Road before the bridge over Oswego Creek at Iron Furnace was washed out. This was a more popular route than by boat on the Willamette River. The beautiful tree-bordered Road followed a small creek then across to Stonebridge and pass the Barnes and stables to the manor house. However, the original mansion was destroyed by fire and the barns are long gone but, it's easy to see the passion that Morey had for trees and a forest setting. He planted hundreds of trees, many not native to the area and some of these are still to be found throughout Glenmorrie, primarily the giant sequoias that border Glenmorrie Drive.
Residents are well within the Lake Oswego school system and students typically attend the Hallinan Elementary school, the Lakeridge middle school, and the Lakeridge high school. All three of these schools receive excellent reviews and ratings from parents and students alike. The Hallinan Elementary school is located right on the border of Glenmorrie in the middle school is about 3 1/2 miles away with the high school being about 2 miles away. The high school receives top marks from great schools.org as well as places like niche.com.
"Lakeridge is a great high school. The administration is kind, caring, and motivational. Teachers are outstanding and inspirational. Have two kids there and they have not experienced any bullying. This school is very academically focused, but they also cares a lot about athletics and extracurricular activities. Would definitely recommend this school." Great Schools
