Cedar Mill Historical Society

Next meeting: May 19th, 6:30-7:45 at the Library Community Room

We’re changing our name from History Project to Historical Society – it sounds so much more official! We are beginning the process of getting tax-exempt status, and we opened a bank account. Local attorney Cecil Strange has agreed to help with incorporation and filing the IRS documentation.

The Cedar Mill History book is nearly out of stock, so we’re working on having it reprinted. Annette Hadaway has volunteered to chair this committee, using her printing experience to help us get a good deal and make sure the printing is done right. We’re also hoping to get the non-profit status in time to sell Cedar Mill History calendars for the holidays.


The Old Cedar Sawmill was located south of Cornell near 119th

Bruce Bartlett, chairman of CPO #1, is heading a committee to research the old original cedar sawmill with an idea of building some kind of replica as an educational demonstration project. If anyone is interested in working on this, come to the next meeting.

Planning continues for the Old Cedar Mill Days celebration slated for May 2006. A parade down the newly-completed stretch of Cornell will be a historical pageant involving school kids and community groups. There will also be a Fair and maybe even a Barn Dance! We’re hoping to get a lot of folks involved in the planning for this event. If you’re interested, come to the next meeting on Thursday, May 19, from 6:30-7:45 pm at the Cedar Mill Library upstairs Community Room.

Dolores DeYoung Fallon has agreed to help track down old journals and other documents from early-day Cedar Mill to make copies for a collection of historical items to reside in the Cedar Mill Community Library. If anyone knows of an old document that we can copy, let us know - 503-629-5799 or email us .
