    Pendleton Woolen Mills

    The story of Pendleton begins with a tale of entrepreneurial risk and a bit of adventure, but also, above all, a pioneering spirit-that of a young Englishman, Thomas Kay, who travelled to Oregon in 1863 to work as a boss weaver in the new state's textile industry. Back then, the Pacific Northwest was still rife with trapping and trading, while the historic Oregon Trail wagon route-perhaps best-known in contemporary culture through the eponymous 1970s computer game-was at its height channelling mass migration from the Missouri River to the Beaver State.
