Springdale ...
Springdale is a small Oregon community located along the Historic Columbia River Highway, uphill from approximately Columbia River Mile (RM) 125. Upstream is the Oregon community of Corbett and downstream is the community of Troutdale.

Early Springdale ...
"Springdale is a community between Troutdale and Corbett on the Historic Columbia River Highway. In the 1890s, the east end was called Springdale and the west end Gage. When the Post Office was established in 1900, it was named Gage to avoid confusion with a number of other places in Oregon whose name began with Spring. William M. Northway was the first and only postmaster, and the office was closed October 31, 1903. Subsequently, the name Springdale was used for the entire settlement. Mrs. Grant Bell picked the name because of the many springs in the area."
