Cedar Mill is a census-designated place and an unincorporated community in Washington County, Oregon, mostly north of U.S. Route 26 and west of the Willamette Stone. It received its name from a sawmill on Cedar Mill Creek, which cut Western Redcedars which were the dominant tree in the area; the mill's pond was near the intersection of 119th and Cornell Road, which could still be seen into the 1960s. As of the 2000 census, the community population was 12,597.

Most of the land, as was typical in the Tualatin Valley, was settled in accord with the Donation Land Claim Act of 1850. It became a school district in 1856. According to Oregon Geographic Names, a Cedar Mill post office was established in 1874, in the John Quincy Adams Young House, which still stands on Cornell Road and is being renovated to become a Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District facility.
