The Pendleton company’s roots began in 1863 when Thomas L. Kay made a transcontinental trek to the west coast and began working in Oregon's woolen mills. He went on to open his own mill. In 1909 his daughter and son-in-law moved the family to Pendleton in northeastern Oregon and took over the defunct Pendleton Woolen Mills. The family resumed the production of Native-American blankets and introduced new designs, colors, and patterns to their product line.  In 1912 the company opened a weaving mill in Washougal, Washington. Our trip begins with a visit to Two Rivers Heritage Museum and lunch in a floating café before our tour and shopping at the Pendleton mill and store.
