Cedar is a community within the city of Oak Grove in Anoka County, Minnesota, United States. Cedar is found on Cedar Drive, on the south side of Viking Boulevard.

History[edit]

Cedar was established some time prior to 1899, originally received its post office in 1899 under the name of "Snapp," and changed its name to Cedar in 1900.[1] The town's primary commercial enterprise was a cheese factory, still extant, and a station of the Great Northern Railway, now defunct. The village is still distinct and identifiable, and signs mark its location, but it has officially been absorbed into the city of Oak Grove.
