Gillespie Corners is a road junction and unincorporated locale in Lane County, Oregon, United States.[1][2] Gillespie Corners lies at the intersection of Territorial Highway and Lorane Highway, southeast of Eugene.

The locale was named for brothers Marcellus and Walter Gillespie, grandsons of pioneer Jacob Gillespie, who was a member of the Oregon Territorial Legislature and the namesake for Gillespie Butte north of Eugene.[3]
