RICHLAND -- Community Education plans three walking tours this month of Richland's historic "alphabet house" neighborhoods.
The houses, with each model named for a letter of the alphabet, date to the days when Richland was a government-owned town for workers at the Hanford nuclear reservation.
Saturday, a tour is planned of World War II-era neighborhoods in the south part of historic Richland.
The May 18 tour will cover the "Gold Coast," where managers lived.
Never miss a local story.
The May 25 tour will be to neighborhoods in the central portion of Richland, which includes homes from WWII and the Cold War.
Cost is $12 for each tour. The first tour leaves from the CREHST museum in Richland. Call 509-222-5080 for the starting location of the next two tours.
Registration is required at communityed.ksd.org or at the Kennewick School District office, 1000 W. Fourth Ave., Kennewick.
