Over the past ten years, many oral Hanford stories have been collected by several Tri-Cities organizations. These invaluable testimonies, photos and memories of the Hanford story — from settlement of the communities and farms of White Bluffs and Hanford, to the 1943 eviction notices, to World War II and the Cold War — are largely untold.
There are many more still that need to be captured and preserved before they are lost forever as older generations pass away.
As we begin setting up interviews and digitally capturing your Hanford stories, check back often for written accounts, videos and photos. We will post notices on our Facebook page as our collection grows, and as the collection grows so will the features of this site.
This is a multi-phase project that will span the life of Hanford—before, during and after the Manhattan Project—so stay tuned for your opportunity to share your experiences with the Hanford History Partnership.
