Glendale is a city in Douglas County, Oregon, United States. The population was 855 at the 2000 census.



Glendale started out as a small settlement called "Stumptown", because of an economy based on logging. Later the town was named "Julia" in honor of the wife of Sol Abraham, a prominent local citizen. Eventually the town was renamed Glendale.

A major fire in the early-mid 1900s destroyed much of the town, which was rebuilt. There are very few buildings still standing that are more than a century old. The Presbyterian church on Main Street is one of the few buildings left from before the fire.
