Springdale is an unincorporated community in Multnomah County in the U.S. state of Oregon.[1] Located between Troutdale and Corbett on the Historic Columbia River Highway, it was named for the many springs in the area.[2] In the 1890s, the east end of the community was called Springdale, but the west end was called Gage. Gage had a post office from 1900 to 1903.[2]

Springdale School, which has become the Springdale Community Center, is at the intersection of the historic highway and Bell Road. The first school building at the site was built in 1899, the second about 20 years later, and the third in 1931. Voters approved consolidation of the Springdale and Corbett school districts in 1960, and in 1996 the Corbett School District (CSD) stopped using the Springdale building as a school. Tenants who began renting space in the building from CSD eventually formed the Springdale School Community Association (SSCA), which was granted 501(c)(3) nonprofit status in 2006.[3]

SSCA's stated mission is "to preserve and enhance the Springdale School property in cooperation with the Corbett School District and facilitate its use for cultural, educational and social opportunities for a broad spectrum of the Springdale/Corbett Community".[4] In February 2009, the CSD board voted unanimously to accept an offer from SSCA to buy the property for $312,000 at a closing set for May 2011.[5] Until then, the center will continue under terms of a memorandum of understanding between CSD and SSCA.[5]
