Cedar Mill History Museum
Until we find a new location, we're packing up and storing our history collection. Do you have any ideas? It needs to be in or near Cedar Mill and be free or VERY cheap! The library and the Grange Hall are NOT possibilities. We may be able to locate a museum in the renovated JQA Young House, but that's quite a way off!
In the meantime, Cedar Mill Library will be displaying a small selection of our images in rotation. And we have many other projects in the works to share and celebrate our history!
Come and learn about our community, from the Tualatin natives to the mid-century suburbs!
If you have items that can help us tell the Cedar Mill History story, please let us know! We are interested in both loans and donations of items in use in the area prior to 1963: everything from farming, logging, and household items to advertising materials, journals, books, and other artifacts. The Cedar Mill Historical Society is a non-profit, 501c3 organization, so your donations may be tax-deductible.
If you're interested in helping us tell the stories, we're looking for Museum Guide volunteers. Please contact us at email@example.com if you'd like to help or if you have items for the display.
Cedar Mill History book
These pages contain excerpts from the book, "Cedar Mill
History" by Linda S. Dodds and Nancy A. Olson. The book is out of print, but copies are available at the Cedar Mill library, and occasionally at Powell's.
We're also including stories contributed by Cedar Mill residents
about their memories. If you have a story, or know someone who
does, please email
The Cedar Mill Historical Society is a 501(c)3 charitable organization formed to further the preservation and education about our community's past. Visit the Cedar Mill History Project for some ideas on how we can do this, and email
us if you'd like more information: firstname.lastname@example.org.
