Hanford High School


Hanford, Washington (WA), US
Hanford was a small agricultural community in Benton County, Washington State. In the spring of 1943, the U.S. Government seized 586 square miles of desert in southeast Washington and ordered everyone to pack up and move within 90 days, for the purpose of developing the Hanford Site. Homes were torn down, trees pulled up by the roots, bodies were exhumed from the town cemetery and reburied in nearby Pasco.

Today, the Hanford Site is a mostly decommissioned nuclear production complex operated by the United States federal government on the Columbia River in the U.S. state of Washington.

Hanford Nuclear Reservation is a part of American history. Hanford tours are free, and are conducted between April and September of each year. When tour dates are set for 2016, you’ll be able to sign up at for the B Reactor tour, and for the pre-Manhattan history tour. Participants must be 12 or older.
