Lookout Mountain

Lookout Mountain is located one mile southwest of Cedar Vale on a gravel road. A private drive leads to the top (elevation 1274 feet), and a short hike affords a splendid panoramic view of Cedar Vale and miles of surrounding country. Fred Montgomery gave the right-of-way for the road to the top of Lookout Mountain to the City of Cedar Vale. Old timers say there was once an Indian trail marker on top of Lookout Mountain that told of Osage Indians traveling the Black Dog Trail to their hunting grounds.

Cedar Vale – History

Cedar Vale was founded in 1869 by J. R. Marsh, who was "hunting a place of peace and rest". He was captivated by the local tall-grass prairie, the beauty of nearby Lookout Mountain, and the rich bottom-land of the Caney River Valley.

Platted the following year, the town was not "square with the world". Cedar Vale was laid out on the diagonal rather than aligning with north-south compass points, so that looking down Cedar Street gave an unobstructed view of Caney River and Cedar Creek Valleys, and the junction of the two streams.

Cedar Vale has never been a boom or a bust town. Fortunately, its residents have enjoyed a modest but solid economy, waxing and waning with the fortunes of the agricultural enterprises of the area.
