History in the News
Early Farms in Cedar Mill

Farming served several purposes in the settlement of Cedar Mill. For early settlers it was a means of survival.


Featured Business
Len Weaver-New York Life Insurance

You could say that Len Weaver has insurance in his blood. His father sold insurance in the Midwest for 40 years, and one of his brothers now runs that agency.


Present-day farming in Cedar Mill

One way to look at the history of Cedar Mill is that when European settlers first arrived, they cut and milled the wood to build Portland; then on the cleared land they grew food to feed Portland; and now we house Portland. But a few farms still persist, maintained by tenacious people who love the land and have resisted the temptation to turn it into cash.


Protecting The Land That Feeds Us

Most of us have no experience in producing anything more than a few tomatoes in September. Year round food production would be completely beyond us.



Celebrate our new Town Center Roads!

Mark your calendar for a party on Friday, May 19 celebrating the completion of the Cedar Mill Town Center road project. The whole community is invited!


Work party at the Wetland

On Saturday, April 8th from 9 am to noon the Rock Creek Watershed Partners and The Wetland Conservancy will sponsor a restoration work party at the Cedar Mill Wetland.


Polygon to offer first Teufel homes in June

The northern segment of the (as-yet-unnamed) development on approximately 100 acres that stretches between Barnes and Cornell, formerly the site of one of the Teufel company’s nurseries, is well on its way to completion.
