Our County's History...
The history of Tillamook County serves as a reminder of the diverse people who have called it home. From the Tillamook Indians to Captain Gray’s 1788 voyage into Tillamook Bay, this stretch of the north Oregon coast is a living memorial to those who came before. Tillamook County’s rich history is preserved for all to enjoy at the Tillamook County Pioneer Museum.
Beginning with a collection of 400 items, TCPM has now grown to include 55,000 items plus an additional 20,000 photographs. The current collection ranges from prehistoric specimens to modern day. On your next visit to Tillamook County, stop by and enjoy our Historic Past at the Tillamook County Pioneer Museum.
