Owners, the late Louis Johnson and his wife Anne Johnson started El-Jay Manufacturing in
Eugene in 1932, designing and building rock crushers. Having sold their
rock crushing business and along with their project manager, Douglas Moorhead,
decided to build the finest 55 and over community in the Northwest.
The Johnson's and Moorhead's traveled the Northwest looking at
manufactured home communities, they found several nice communities but none of
them were what they had envisioned. They wanted their community to
resemble a residential neighborhood with the finest construction available in
Their homes were set-up on solid foundations with double
and triple car garages, vinyl fencing, generous size lots with impeccable
landscaping. Each lot in their community has individual street addresses eliminating the need for
An 8000 sq ft clubhouse was completed in 1999 for residents to enjoy.
Every resident has a key to the clubhouse and can use it anytime, day or night.
The homeowners may also reserve it for FREE for their own special private
parties and events!
In the spring of 1994, construction began on the corner
of Northwest Expressway and Irving Road in Eugene, Oregon. Gainsborough
is a fully gated, exclusive, private community that consists of 73
beautifully designed manufactured homes. This manufactured home community has a
central clubhouse, recreational area, six acres of open space, and its own
meandering waterway. Located 30 minutes from scenic mountains, 50 minutes
from the beautiful Oregon coast, minutes from shopping, restaurants, hospitals
and golf courses (across the street from a 9 hole course) Gainsborough is
the ideal community for active adults.
Gainsborough buyers are looking for a place to enjoy life, associate with people
their own age, and not have the hassles of home maintenance. They
appreciate the quality that is throughout, from the
custom-manufactured Super Good Cents and Natural Gas homes, set on extra large lots, to the
private fenced patios and elegant interiors. Many enjoy traveling the
world without worrying about their homes in this gated community.
Gainsborough has beautiful walking trails along "River Avon", a
natural waterway that runs through our 23 acre community. Two beautiful waterfalls,
four elegant water fountains, a
wide variety of birds and small animals can be found along the walking trails
and waterway. A
portion of the creek is stocked with Rainbow Trout for residents and their
guests to enjoy fishing. There are park benches for you to enjoy the serenity and natural beauty that you can only find in the country, but is
offered right here in the city of Eugene at Gainsborough.
Gainsborough's clubhouse is a favorite gathering place for residents. This
beautiful building is over 8,000 square feet. It is available for
community events, as well as gatherings for friends and family members.
The clubhouse has a great room, kitchen, and a large dance floor for weekend
parties, dances and special occasions. There is a pool table room,
exercise room, card room and a craft room complete with a pottery kiln and much
more. Residents stay active with exercise/aerobics classes held three
times a week, dinner out every month, potlucks, barbecues, games, Red Hat tea
parties, movie nights and neighborhood block parties. We have numerous
parties to celebrate the holidays like our St. Patrick's Day, Valentines
Day dances, hilarious Halloween parties, elegant Christmas and Thanksgiving
dinners. The residents here at
