Cowboys. Indians. Pioneers. Explorers. Moonshiners. Gamblers. Working Girls and the real Hop Sing. They are all part of Pendleton’s colorful past. And with public art, galleries, fantastic Northwest cuisine and even a symphony, you might be surprised to see how cultural the real West can be. Best known as the home of the Pendleton Woolen Mills and the Pendleton Round-Up, this area’s Western heritage also includes the Oregon Trail, explorers’ routes and stagecoach trails, among others.
