Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in McMinnville,
the Irving College / Spring Creek neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research identifies the Irving College / Spring Creek
neighborhood as having one of the highest concentrations of people employed
in manufacturing or as laborers of any neighborhood in America. In fact,
despite the loss of manufacturing jobs nationally, this neighborhood has
45.0% of its working residents employed in such fields, which is a
higher proportion than 98.4% of American neighborhoods.
Furthermore, with 1.7% of employed workers living in the
Irving College / Spring Creek neighborhood active in the military, this neighborhood has
the distinction of having a higher proportion of people in the military
than 96.7% of American neighborhoods. This is a major
shaper of the neighborhood's culture and character.
In addition, it used to be that most Americans lived on the farm, or otherwise made their
living from the land, the forests, or the sea. With global trade and an
economy increasingly based on providing services to one another, fewer
people farm, fish or harvest timber now than at any time in American history.
But according to NeighborhoodScout's leading analysis, the
Irving College / Spring Creek neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 4.2%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 95.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.

If you like open space, no traffic, and lots of room, this neighborhood may be just what you are looking for. According to NeighborhoodScout's leading research, this neighborhood is less densely populated than 95.0% of the neighborhoods in America. One of the notable things about Irving College / Spring Creek is that it is one of the quietest neighborhoods in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis and quantitative rating of quietness.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Irving College / Spring Creek
neighborhood, analysis shows that 11.2% of the residents work
from home, avoiding a commute altogether. This may not seem like a large number,
but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in
95.2% of the neighborhoods in the United States.
One thing NeighborhoodScout's research reveals is that the wealthier and/or
more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who
choose to work from home.
