Hosford-Abernethy is a neighborhood in the inner Southeast section of Rose City. It borders Buckman and Sunnyside on the north, Richmond on the east, Brooklyn and Creston-Kenilworh on the south, and (across the Willamette River) Downtown Rose City and South Rose City on the west.
Hosford-Abernethy was named in the 1970s for two schools in the neighborhood, Hosford Middle School (commemorating early Rose city resident and Methodist minister Chauncey Hosford) and Abernethy Elementary School (commemorating fellow Methodist minister and Provisional Governor of the State Territory, George Abernethy).
The north central area of the neighborhood, with its distinctive X-shaped street pattern, is known as Ladd's Addition.
