About us



 Our Community:

Gainsborough is a premier 55 & older community, where you purchase your home and lease your land.  We are considered “the picture perfect 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, Valentine’s Day dances, hilarious Halloween parties, elegant Christmas and Thanksgiving dinners and many more events to help create a lifestyle you can enjoy. 
                                     The residents here at Gainsborough are
                                    ready to kick back and enjoy the good life
                                     with good friends and great neighbors!

Our Construction Standards:

Our homes are 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 space numbers.  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! 

Gainsborough’s quality construction and residential street appeal has made this a community that people are proud to call home.  You can see the pride of ownership as soon as you enter our gates.  If you’re 55 and older and looking for a gracious carefree lifestyle this is the place for you!

Our History:

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.

Our Owner’s:

The late Louis Johnson and his wife Anne Johnson
started El-Jay Manufacturing in Eugene in 1947,
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 the industry.
