About Richland

Richland is a city located in Benton County, Washington. It is part of the Tri-Cities metropolitan area, along with the cities of Kennewick and Pasco. Richland was originally established in 1910 as a small agricultural town, but its history took a major turn during World War II.

During the war, Richland became one of the sites for the Manhattan Project, which was the top-secret government program to develop the atomic bomb. The city was chosen due to its remote location and proximity to the Columbia River, which provided abundant water for the project. As a result, Richland experienced a rapid population growth, with thousands of workers moving to the area to work on the project.

Today, Richland is known for its role in the nuclear industry and is home to the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, which conducts research in areas such as energy, national security, and environmental sustainability. The city also has a strong focus on transportation, with the nearby Tri-Cities Airport providing easy access to the region. Additionally, Richland is located along the Columbia River, making it an important hub for freight transportation, with barges and ships transporting goods to and from the city.
