Pendleton Woolen Mills

Search Pendleton Oregon
Thomas Kay opened his own mill in Salem, Oregon, producing world-famous woolens since 1909. Thomas Kay's eldest daughter, Fannie, learned the mill business and ably assisted her father in mill operation and management. When she married retail merchant C.P. Bishop, a complementary combination of merchandising and manufacturing expertise emerged - a solid foundation for what was to become Pendleton Woolen Mills.
