About the Hawthorne District In Portland
The main, and most popular, street that runs through this district is Hawthorne Boulevard. This road was originally home to Oregon’s first mental hospital and was named “Asylum Avenue” until 1883, when the facilities closed. The East Portland residents then renamed the street after the hospital’s founder, Dr. J.C Hawthorne.

The Best Dog Parks in the Hawthorne District
I am so happy I came across Portland Pet Food. My French Bulldog LOVES it and it's so convenient on the go. This is the only company that has a single protein meal with limited ingredients that's salmon. My fur baby is allergic to everything so it's very hard to find things for him but this is perfect. Odie is a happy boy and thanks you for this great product.
