Tillamook County Pioneer Association 90th Anniversary Celebration Kicks Off May 2024; Special Exhibit at Tillamook County Pioneer Museum, Opening Reception May 4th

The Tillamook County Pioneer Association is proud to celebrate their 90th Anniversary (1934-2024) – Building Community Through History. Join us to celebrate this achievement, to continue to educate about our history and unite together, sharing stories into the future.

From May 1 – 31 there will be an exhibit on display at the Tillamook County Pioneer Museum guiding you on a journey through the past 90 years of our association.

Although the exhibit opens on May 1st, there will be a GRAND OPENING of the exhibit on Saturday, May 4th  from 1 to 4 pm with board members to visit with and refreshments to enjoy.

There will also be this picture of the founding members. We can’t identify all the faces. Maybe you can help us identify your ancestors?

Formation of Tillamook Pioneer Association, May 25, 1934

The association idea to preserve our Tillamook County history started at a birthday party for Rhoda Quick Johnson in 1934. Rhoda loved lemon pie so our refreshments will assuredly have a lemon theme!
