Hanford Reach South

Hanford Reach South Professional Review and Guide

"Pass a gate and follow an old paved road south. The road was closed when the US government, during World War II, chose the surrounding area to host a massive plutonium-processing complex and several nuclear reactors. The towns of Hanford and White Bluffs were condemned and evacuated. All that remains of them are a schoolhouse and several roads and sidewalks. As you saunter down this road, try to imagine what life was like for those two rural communities on the Reach in 1942— and how quickly life changed when the Manhattan Project went into effect in 1943 (see “From Manhattan Project to National Monument” sidebar)."
