Preserving Historic Landmarks in Franklin County

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash.- Pasco is a city with some real history. Various historic landmarks and buildings are scattered throughout the city.

The city has a new Historic Preservation Commission. A group of appointed officials who are working to come up with a plan to preserve things like the county's historical museum or even the Franklin County Courthouse. But they're looking for public input; that's why they're holding an open house to lay out some ideas and to hear new ones from people like you.

"One of the challenges for historic preservation in Pasco, Kennewick and Richland I think is how do we best preserve these resources that tend to be scattered kind of all over," said Rick White, the Pasco Community and Economic Development Director.

The open house will be held Wednesday night in City Council chambers. That is where the brainstorming will begin to plan how to preserve some of the city's most iconic and historic buildings and artifacts.
