Explore Pendleton’s Red Light District On This Underground Tour In Oregon
History isn’t always confined to what’s in the books. In fact, most times, it’s the unwritten history that really paints the most accurate picture of the past. This is most certainly true in Pendleton, Oregon, a historic town cloaked in scandal and secrecy. Hidden away beneath this small town in eastern Oregon, the Pendleton Underground is a network of tunnels that once was home to many secret businesses — both legal and illegal. It’s also a place where Chinese immigrant workers faced egregious persecution and discrimination. It’s not pretty, but it’s part of Oregon. And thanks to Pendleton Underground Tours, visitors can learn all about the town’s untold, underground history.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
