Since 2007, the Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation District (THPRD) has sponsored our local celebration of food, music, and history on the grounds of the historic JQA Young House on Cornell near 119th.

See how the pioneers made cider with antique, hand-cranked presses, and sample the results. Listen to the folk, bluegrass and old-time music of Lauren Sheehan and her String Band, and enjoy a delicious local lunch. Find out more about Cedar Mill history and the plans for the Cedar Mill Historical Society and the historic JQA Young House. Browse craft booths and learn about local organizations from our Community Partners.

JQA Young HouseOur real history

The History Tent tells our history stories with a collection of photos from Cedar Mill History Museum.

The Cedar Mill Historical Society, a 501(c)3 non profit, is beginning a campaign to raise $1.2 million to rebuild the foundation and restore the house. We’re looking to build our Board of Directors to help us in this big endeavor. Once we raise the money to renovate the house, the Museum will have a permanent home.

New this year will be an Oral History tent. Families and friends are invited to bring their elders to record video and audio to preserve the memories of those who lived here. It’s not limited to Cedar Mill, anyone with stories from Washington County is invited. Check the website and Facebook pages for more information.

The Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation District (THPRD) owns the house and grounds, and is the main sponsor of the event. A portion of the proceeds from the Vendor Alley sales will go to the restoration fund. Donations are also welcome!
