The City of Tillamook was the first community to be settled in the county. It was first named "Hoquarten," believed to be an Indian name meaning "the landing." The name was later changed to Tillamook, meaning "land of many waters".

Joseph Champion was the first settler in the vicinity. He arrived in 1851 and made his home in a hollow spruce tree. Before long, more settlers came, all bachelors. In 1852, the first two families arrived to make their homes. Each year brought more families. On December 15, 1853, Tillamook County was created by an act of legislature.

With the coming of the railroad in 1911, the first paved streets were laid. By 1925 Tillamook was quickly becoming the modern commercial, agricultural and industrial center it is today.
