Let's Look Back

     In the year 1943 a group of men sitting around 

a table in Washington D.C. seriously watched as one 

of their number pointed to a tiny spot on a large 

scale map of the Pacific Northwest.  RICHLAND! Here, 

they decided, was the place! Thus was sown the seed 

from which sprouted a great plant and a thriving 

community.

Within a few months the pastoral quiet of this 

agricultural region was no more.  Giant bulldozers 

leveled great tracts of ground, massive trucks roared 

day and night along erstwhile country lanes, new 

roads appeared and factories exploded into being from 

the desert sands.  The fantastic barracks town of 

Hanford materialized to house thousands of 

constructions workers.


The nucleus of a vast, secret plant, born of wartime

necessity, had been created.
