Pendleton in Umatilla County, Oregon — The American West (Northwest)
Woodmen of the World
Woodmen of the World is a fraternal organization and was founded in 1890 in Omaha, Nebraska by Joseph Cullen Root. One of the most enduring physical legacies of the organization may be the number of distinctive cemetery headstones made in the shape of a tree stump. This was an early benefit of Woodmen membership, and the headstones can be found in cemeteries across the nation. The Pendleton chapter of the fraternal organization had this building built in 1905.
