Portland vicinity[14] The Young family settled in this saltbox house in the 1860s when John acquired an interest in a nearby lumber mill. Over time, the house and mill became central to the early development of the local Cedar Mill community. When the Youngs moved to new, larger quarters in 1874, John opened Cedar Mill's first general store and post office on the house's first floor. When the store and post office closed in 1881, the house reverted to residential use, and is today the oldest remaining historic structure in Cedar Mill.[15]
