Christmas at Hanford in the 40s

Richland - Holidays at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation looked a lot different in the forties. And CREHST Museum is featuring some of the beauty and the history of the tradition this month.

Visitors will see what the construction site looked like over six decades ago.  Holiday activities,  they say, were so numerous that the schedule was four pages long!   Nevertheless, the emphasis was, "Enjoy these activities while finishing the job."

CREHST has a Christmas tree that is sure to fascinate kids.  It comes complete with a wooden train.   Visitors can try their hand at decorating it, using only a "high tech" device called a 'manipulator hand.'   The museum at 95 Lee Boulevard is open from ten a.m. until five p.m. Monday through Saturday, and noon until five p.m. on Sundays.
