Hoover Foster / Ghosttown, Oakland Real Estate & Homes
Located on Oakland’s west side, Hoover-Foster is an established neighborhood which is sometimes referred to as Ghosttown or "Ghost Town". The name Ghosttown is derived from several different origins, which most commonly include being named after two separate casket companies that were once located here; and because the neighborhood resembled somewhat of a “ghost town” after many home owners and businesses were displaced through eminent domain during the construction of the 980 Freeway and BART extension.
