St Johns neighborhood is located in outer North Portland in the Willamette River and Columbia Slough watersheds. The neighborhood forms a penninsula at the confluence of the Willamette and Columbia Rivers. Its location made the neighborhood an ideal place for lumber and ship building yards in the mid to late 19th century, and soon passenger trains with steam engines began serving the area. St Johns was its own city until 1915 when it was annexed into the City of Portland.

Today, the neighborhood is a mix of commercial, industrial, and residential with a small town feel. According to the US Census Bureau, the neighborhood is one of the more diverse in City, with a significant Hispanic community.
