The Opening of a Historic Exhibit in Richland.

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash. - The Columbia River Exhibition of History, Science and Technology off of Lee Boulevard in Richland, also known as the "C.R.E.H.S.T"Museum, has an exhibit from the World War II Era.

It's a small silver trailer, built back in the 1940's.  It housed a few construction workers who took part in building the nuclear reactors that stand today at the Hanford site. 

The trailer home has 150 square feet of living space and is just one of many trailers that made up the largest trailer park of it's time in the world.  The park had over 3600 trailer spaces, which you can still see on the Hanford tour.

To take an inside look at the exhibit the Museum is open Monday through Friday from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM.  And Sunday's from noon to 5:00 PM. 

For more information call the Museum at 943-9000.
