Don Best’s photography is well-known throughout the region, as well as his gift for “restoring” historic photographs and his collection of images that provide a glimpse into the past. The Pioneer is also proud to feature the “Best” photography — with Mr. Best’s images gracing our websites header, and accompanying many of the Pioneer’s stories. In his spare time, we’ve featured “The Best of History”, which he researches and provides resources and contacts. Watch for more of “The Best of History” coming soon in the Pioneer.
A descendant of a Tillamook County pioneers as Best’s grandfather secured one of the last homesteads in Rockaway Beach, and he lives in that home today.
