This Is My Hanford

Welcome To This Is My Hanford

This section of the Hanford exhibit is devoted to the stories, experiences, and lives touched by Hanford. From construction workers who helped build the facility, to Native Americans who once called the Hanford site home, to those who lost family members that worked at Hanford, this section will provide a cross-section of stories from people affected by Hanford. These personal testimonials will provide a glimpse into the undocumented history of Hanford and the thoughts and feelings of those whose lives were touched in some way by the first full-scale plutonium production facility in the world.
