1. Hendricks Building Marker
Inscription. Built in 1897 by early day brothel owner, Christopher Columbus Hendricks, this building has one of the least altered store fronts and interiors within the historic district. The southern most commercial space originally had an angled doorway with a free standing cast iron column at the corner.
The second floor was originally occupied by a turn of the century lodge, Knights of the Macabees. The Bijou Saloon occupied the first floor. The Duckpin Bowling Alley and Card Room in the basement was for years at active recreational gathering place.
The passageways under the sidewalk are kept intact as part of the Pendleton Underground.
 
Erected by City of Pendleton.
