comment on earlier posting: love this little town. - 8/30/2016
GOLDENDALE is loved by a very select, elite, and religious group. I withhold using labels to describe the mentality of Goldendale, but can describe the hostile treatment I have experience from the first day 13 years ago when I purchased property there and continues to this day. From this hostile treatment I can only surmise that others have experienced the same treatment and while the locals describe this town as slow, easy, laid back, and quiet they fail to mention the prejudice here than can only be compared to the Confederate South. By the way the Confederate Flag was displayed this summer (2016) during the parade to celebrate the County Fair. This is a nice area especially during the summer and there are recreational activities that suit young and old. Actually if you are the correct political, religious, and race you will be accepted into the community. However, fall outside these requirements for acceptance they will shun you. That has been noted in the comments placed by an Read More

glodendale: nice place to move to? - 8/29/2016
Read the two reviews before I made this commentary. The reviews submitted so far are from locals who have survived some economic hard times in the area. Both of these reviews make it appear Goldendale is a great community if it were not for the druggies, hillbillies, and Trailer trash" that the locals have to co-habitate with. Of course these are labels and once you label someone, or something, you cease know who that person, or thing, truly is because the "label" says it all so what else is there to know. With this in mind here is my experience with Goldendale. Approximately 13 years ago I bought property within the urban growth area of the city limits. I had (key word had) great expectations of renovating a building into a woodworking shop and offering instruction to anyone, (local, hillbilly, trailer trash), and a place to show their work. Friends in Hood River and The Dalles (50 and 30 miles respectively west) advised me of the reputation Goldendale has created for itself. Well I Read More

Not that bad but getting there - 5/11/2010
I have lived here all of my 34 years and its has been a great place to live, raise a family, have what fun there is to have and just to relax. A beautiful place for the scenery for lots of mountians to see. But with the way times are changing so is this town. I have seen people i have known all my life leave for there are no longer any big jobs to support families here anymore, which in return brings 2 types of people. The first i have no problem with and that is the elderly, small towns make for nice quite retirement places. These type bring knowledge and relaxtion and cleanliness with them. Then there is the other type. The type that think hey small town, small town law, means small town time for crime. which in return means trashy type home because of the "drugies" they just dont care about much accept where they score their next score. These type of people are ruing goldendale for everybody. I once thought that i myself would live here till I passed on. But its getting Read More

Love this little town. - 7/13/2008
There are no "white trash" here just honest, hard working people. They would give the shirt off their back if you needed it, and they are very quiet folks. In town you can leave you windows open at night and not worry about someone getting a quick peek or worse yet getting into you home. The skunks usually keep you from roaming at night. And most people bring the dogs in for that reason also. It is a full service town for everything except the opera, and theater. But that's not a problem as Portland is only 2 hours away and it's a nice drive and a straight shot. The horse community is growing as there are lots of trails and plenty of open gravel roads. The pace is slow in this town so bring a hammock and relax. We have our second home here and just love it. Oh and SNOB just don't bother as you will be marked and Read More

Low class town - 3/7/2007
Pretty view, but that's about it. Trailers (& modulars) are everywhere. Draws all the white trash for the 4-wheel events, but hey, they fit right in with the locals. Folks are retiring here because it's cheap but there are few services available in town. Have to travel 30+ miles for Read More
