Mohawk is an unincorporated community in Lane County, Oregon, United States, on the Mohawk River, about seven miles upstream from Springfield.[1]

When a post office was established at this locale in 1862, it was named "Mohawk" after the river.[1] The post office operated intermittently, and after being converted to a rural station in 1958, it was finally terminated in 1961.[1] When the Southern Pacific Railroad established a station on the Marcola line there, it was named "Donna".[1][2] Historically there was also a nearby locale known as "Mohawk Post".[3]
