Facts about Alvadore
Found in Lane County, Alvadore is sometimes referred to as a rural suburb or as an unincorporated community. Whatever the designation, Alvadore is only nine miles northwest of the downtown area of Eugene. The community is generally not included in census data, making it difficult to ascertain the number of people who live there.
There is some evidence of activity in what would become Alvadore as far back as the 1850s. The area was first known as Fern Ridge, which is still the name of the nearby reservoir. The platting for the community seems to have taken place in or around 1915. This followed the establishment of a post office in 1914.
The area received its name from Alvador Welch, who was responsible for building the Portland, Eugene and Eastern Railway that ran through the area. This railway was eventually purchased by the Southern Pacific Railroad. In 1936, the line was discontinued, and the tracks were removed.
Prosperity in the community led to the establishment of a school, several businesses, and a spurt in population. While the school is no longer present, the community is served by several churches. The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) was one of the more prominent denominations in the community from the middle-19th century on, and remains a key part of the community today.
