Pendleton Oregon Attractions

 

Blue Mountain Forest State Scenic Corridor
Blue Mountain Forest State Scenic Corridor lies along the Old Oregon Trail Highway between Deadman's Pass and Spring Creek. The corridor protects one of the few examples of mature evergreen forests on I-84 between Ogden, Utah and The Dalles, Oregon. Composed of intermittent stands of old-growth ponderosa pine, western larch, Engelmann spruce, lodgepole pine and grand fir, this corridor contains undisturbed examples of the native plants and animals. White- tailed deer, mule deer, Rocky Mountain elk, cougar and other wildlife inhabit the corridor. Spring explodes in a multi-hued kaleidoscope of flowers. The fall frost ends the season in a final flurry of color.

Children's Museum of Eastern Oregon
400 S Main St, Pendleton, Oregon, phone: 541-276-1066

Emigrant Springs State Heritage Area
Perched near the summit of the Blue Mountains, Emigrant Springs State Heritage Area offers visitors an opportunity to camp and explore a popular pioneer stop over along the Oregon Trail. The park is nestled in an old-growth forest. Camp in the campground, or bring your horse and camp in the reservable horse camp (be aware there are limited horse trails actually in the park; most of the trail riding is on adjacent property). The horse camp is closed in winter.

Pendleton Underground Tours
37 S.W. Emigrant Ave., Pendleton OR 97801, phone: 800-226-6398
Pendleton Underground Tours ( P.U.T.) is a non-profit corporation that started in 1989, giving tours of Pendleton's red light district. The tour was very controversial because part of the subject matter is about gambling, the Chinese, bootlegging and prostitution. In 1990, after opening the "Cozy Rooms" bordello, Chinese jails and the Opium Den, the tour became even more questionable. The history of legal and illegal businesses operating in the same area for over 100 years makes the tour unique and like no other tour anywhere. The history of the Chinese in Eastern Oregon and their role in building the west is also unique. The tour is entertaining and interesting to all ages from 6 years old to 95 years old there is something for every member of the family.

Tamástslikt Cultural Institute
72789 Highway 331, Pendleton, Oregon 97801, phone: 541-966-9748, email: tci.visitors@tamastslikt.org -- Tamástslikt Cultural Institute opened in August,1998, but it had its visionary genesis in the early 1990's. That's when Oregon was planning for the sesquicentennial of the Oregon Trail. While the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation - the Walla Walla, Umatilla and Cayuse - have little reason to celebrate the Oregon Trail: it led to war and to a huge loss of land and people for the Tribes; nonetheless they felt it was important to mark the occasion. They also felt that it was important for their view of the Oregon Trail story to be told. This vision led to the cultural institute.

Umatilla County Historical Society Museum
108 S.W. Frazer, Pendleton, Oregon   97801, phone: 541-276-001, email: uchs@oregontrail.net --The Umatilla County Historical Society Museum is located in what was once Pendleton's railway depot.  Erected in 1909, the historic building with its classic architectural details and antique fixtures was refurbished by the Society and opened as a museum in the Fall of 1988. In the spacious high-ceiling exhibit area visitors can view artifacts commemorating the Oregon Trail which passed through the county;  a collection of beautiful, intricate Indian beadwork; displays devoted to the development of local agriculture and the well-known Pendleton Woolen Mills; an authentic 10-foot long marble shoeshine stand; an original railroad telegraph system; and new exhibits introduced throughout the year.
