Oregon’s World-Famous Pendleton Woolen Mills Has Been Around For More Than 150 Years
Oregon is the birthplace of many famous companies that manufacture everything from craft beer to athletic shoes. In the little town of Pendleton, a family reopened a defunct woolen mill in the early 1900s, and today its blankets, shirts, and sweaters are popular all over the world.
