New Hanford Alphabet Homes Exhibit in Richland

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash. - The CREHST Museum recently opened a new exhibit featuring Hanford alphabet homes.

The ABC House Interiors exhibit showcases the types of houses built by the federal government during the 1940's. The exhibit also displays the common household items of the era including Richland specific telephones. Many of the homes built in the period are still used today.

"Almost all of them are still in use, they were great houses they were well built. They're wonderful houses and you drive down George Washington Way and you see these houses," says Connie Estep, CREHST Museum curator.

The exhibit runs through December. Admission to the CREHST Museum is $5 for adults $4 for children and seniors.
