A group of settlers arrived in the western part of the county in the fall of 1870, and on October 25 founded the town of Cedarville where the Cedar Creek flowed into the Solomon River. The Town Company of Cedarville filed papers on January 28, 1871. A post office was established on July 3. Cedarville was the first county seat, but lost the title to Smith Center in 1872.
The ethnicity of its settlers is unknown.
