Teach. Learn. Tour. Experience.

As a non-profit educational organization, the Pendleton Historic Foundation recognizes the importance of teaching our state’s history to students in both the 3rd and 8th grades. We would like to invite you and your class to come visit Woodburn or Ashtabula in order to experience this history first-hand.

Call 864-646-7249 or email us at pendleton.hf@gmail.com.
