Richland, Washington started out as a small farming community, but the city and the area around it were transformed by the government’s building of the first nuclear reactor on the Hanford Site in the 1940s. Richland is also home to the Hanford Reach, the last free flowing stretch of the Columbia River in the United States. More information about Richland.
