Teufel Nursery -- Environmental Solutions since 1890

In 1947 Alfred and Ruth Teufel married, a couple of years after Alfred had purchased a 106-acre dairy farm on Barnes Road. They began to build a business selling nursery stock around the country. They started a family in a house on the property that was older than the historic J.Q.A. Young house that stands on Cornell. Linda Teufel recalls, “a big old house, where I lived until second grade.”


Smart Business Recycling

Reducing the amount of trash your business creates is the best way to reduce monthly waste disposal costs and improve your company’s bottom line. All waste reduction activities -- be they waste prevention, reuse, or recycling practices -- will help you achieve your goal of reducing the amount you pay for waste disposal and sending less trash to landfills.


Trilliums bloom in Jordan Park

A small piece of Cedar Mill’s native forest still exists nestled above the corner of 113th and Cornell. Jordan Park has been part of the Tualatin Hills Parks and Recreation District since 1988 when the Jordan family (Jordan Developers, Inc.) conveyed 6.57 acres to the district. Over the next few years they added several more parcels, and Mill Creek Homes, Inc. donated another piece in 2000. A diversity of wildlife lives here including flying squirrels.


Sentinel Pole comes home at last

Last Fall, ODOT awarded a contract for the construction of The Cedar Mill Sentinel Plaza to Brant Construction, of Vancouver, WA. This bicycle and pedestrian plaza at the northeast corner of NW Cornell and 113th will incorporate the “Sentinel Pole,” a totem pole carved by local Native American artist Rick Bartow. Brant will construct a concrete circle and sidewalks with decorative colored tiles. The Sentinel Pole will be erected next to the center. Illumination and landscaping will also be installed as part of this project.
