Glenwood is an unincorporated community in Washington County, Oregon, United States, northwest of Forest Grove on Oregon Route 6.

The name Glenwood was first used for this locale around 1880.[1] Glenwood post office was established in 1886, though it was not always in the same location.[1] In the 1920s, the Gales Creek and Wilson River Railroad had a terminal station there named "Aagard" (or "Aagaard"[2]) after Olaf Aagard, owner of the Aagard Lumber Company.[1] The name of the station was soon changed to Glenwood to match the post office.[1]

Glenwood has a Forest Grove mailing address, but the Postal Service will deliver mail addressed to Glenwood, Oregon.[3] The ZIP code is 97116.[3]

Glenwood has a store,[4][5] and from 1957 until 1995, the community was the site of the Oregon Trolley Museum, which is now part of Antique Powerland in Brooks.[6]
