Oregon Hill is a working-class Victorian neighborhood that overlooks the James River and Belle Isle and is next to Hollywood Cemetery. Industrial workers from Tredegar Iron Works and Albemarle Paper Company lived here following the Civil War. It is only a few blocks from Virginia Commonwealth University and is a popular place for college students. The Cowboy Junkies released a song call "Oregon Hill" and it features a description of the neighborhood. Oregon Hill is also where hundreds of women met to organize the Richmond Bread Riot during the Civil War.
