Hamley and Co.- Pendleton, Oregon
The famous Hamley and Co. re-opened on September 6, 2005, just in time to celebrate their first century of business in Pendleton, Oregon. Hamley & Co. has delivered quality craftsmanship and a commitment to working cowboys and buckaroos since 1883.Originally, Hamley’s was known as a harness and saddle maker, but the business soon developed around its saddles and became known throughout the west as the maker of “the finest saddles man could ride.” Hamley & Co. was also famous for its excellent innovations in saddle design including helping develop the "Committee" or "Association” style saddle" that became standard equipment for professional saddle-bronc riders throughout the United States and Canada, and the Wade saddletree, developed for legendary horseman Tom Dorrance and named after Dorrance's friend, Clifford Wade.
The Pearce-Woodfield Development Co., headed by Parley Pearce and Blair Woodfield, spent a great deal of time and money acquiring, restoring and stocking the original building that contained the historic business from 1905 through the late 1990s. With pride, they began the resurrection of this great western icon and continued ownership for several years, carrying a full line of western wear, boots, and hats, tack including custom-made bits and spurs, and a gallery featuring some of the best representations of Western life by local and national artists. A fully restored third floor of the building was designed to accommodate large parties and conferences in the Cattle Barons meeting room and the Slick Fork Saloon, that overlook downtown Pendleton. Adjacent to the store is the Coffee and Wine Shop and a few feet further down the block is the Hamley Steakhouse.
As such things go, in August of 2019, the CTUIR became owners of Hamley’s Western Store, Steakhouse, and Café, including the historical building in which they operate. It’s a lifetime of historic tradition that will continue as CTUIR become stewards of the legend’s future. Day-to-day operations of Hamley & Co. are managed by Wildhorse Resort & Casino, bringing to the table 25 years of successful business experience in food and beverage, retail, entertainment, and hospitality.
Hamley’s is also a registered historical site, and the owners take pride in preserving the Hamley quality legacy and creating an Old West experience for everyone who walks through their doors or uses their products.
