Beginning with Winston Churchill’s Iron Curtain Speech, this exhibit identifies the broad themes of the Cold War and the expansion of Hanford during this time. Pop Culture references bring a refreshing perspective in contrast to the Berlin Wall with barbed wire on display.
This exhibit located near the entrance of the REACH facilitates greater public understanding of the Hanford Site story and access to the Hanford Site in the coming years as land is released by the US Department of Energy. Key features include a timeline of events, video, photos and quotes from the men and women involved.
With just over 18 acres of land, the REACH has lots of room to grow and play. Take a short hike up our Energy Northwest Animal Trail, explore our community garden, learn about the history of irrigation in the Mid-Columbia from old wooden pipes to todays circle pivot, and don't forget to stop by our Solar Stage.
