History in the News
How Cedar Mill roads got their names

We tend to take road names for granted, but there are pioneer families behind the names of most of our familiar roads.


Featured Business
Cedar Mill Lumber

In October, 1962, the great Columbus Day Storm hit Cedar Mill, and took off part of the roof of the Cedar Mill Lumber building (see photo).


Sunset Accoyos Alpacas

When Bettsy and Wally Preble’s three boys were young, the family decided it would be good for them to grow up in a rural environment.


Sunset Athletic adds indoor pools

Outdoor pools just don’t work in Oregon winters. So in 2001 Sunset Athletic Club began planning for an indoor aquatic center.


Celebrate our new Town Center Roads!

It’s not that we don’t appreciate the new roads, but boy did we get tired of the construction!

To mark the completion of the Cedar Mill Town Center Road Project, the community is invited to a party in the Bales Thriftway parking lot on Friday, May 19, sponsored by Washington County Land Use and Transportation and the Cedar Mill Business Association.



New management at Bales

Butch Thompson has been with Bales for 25 years at the Farmington store, and has just recently taken over as Store Director of the Cedar Mill store. Janell Wilson, who has been in charge of the floral department, is stepping up as Assistant Store Director.



Stoplight for 107th & Cornell?

Nancy Scheewe, owner of DuFresne’s Auto Service at 107th and Cornell, has been worried for years about the dangers to motorists and pedestrians at the intersection. She has witnessed everything from fender-benders to serious accidents.

Plant sale to raise funds for Library

Cedar Mill Community Library is having a plant sale! Bedding and container plants, perennials, geraniums, herbs, vegetables and more will be available on Saturday, May 20, 2006 from 9 to 4.




27-home subdivision on McDaniel

At a neighborhood meeting on March 16, Ben Altman of SFA Design Group presented plans to develop 27 homes south of McDaniel Rd. near the intersection of Blackhawk. Homes in Iron Ridge Crossing will be 2800-3500 square feet, and since the area is zoned R9 (9 residential lots to the acre) these detached homes will have very small separate yards.



New townhomes for Town Center

Grading and excavation is underway and construction will begin soon on a townhome development just south of Cornell on 129th (behind the Tillamook restaurant). RCM Homes will be the construction management company for Cedar Mill Townhomes.
