Pacific Coast Business Directory

State of Oregon - Pendleton, Umatilla County

Pendleton, Umatilla County, PO and County seat, is a young and growing business town in the valley of the Umatilla River, on the great stage road from the head of navigation on the Columbia to the Grande Ronde and to Boise City, and the mining districts of Idaho. The proposed Portland, Dalles and Kelton Railroad, connecting the Columbia with the Central Pacific, is expected to pass through Pendleton, giving it quite a central character. Good roads already lead to the various surrounding towns, bringing it considerable trade. The large valleys of Birch Creek, the Hautomah, and of Wild Horse Creek center to the Umatilla in the vicinity of Pendleton, constituting a large agricultural area, mostly open for pre-emption and awaiting development. It is also hoped that the Indian Reservation which borders the town will soon be removed, and the vast tract of fertile and beautiful country now occupied as a waste by the savages, will be thrown open to settlers. The substantial public buildings, and numerous hotels and stores, give evidence of permanence and prosperity. One newspaper, the Oregon Tribune, is published weekly.
