Brief History of West Richland, Washington

In the late 1940s, many workers from Hanford were frustrated by many of the regulations of the time in Richland, then owned by the federal government, and began settling across the other side of the Yakima River. West Richland was once the two small communities of Enterprise and Heminger City. The community officially incorporated in 1955 and became the Tri-Cities growth leader during the 1990s by doubling its population to nearly 9000 residents. West Richland now has over 10,800 residents and offers a comfortable blend of quality rural living with city conveniences and services, and is known for its wide variety of family – oriented events.

The city continues to grow due to the popularity of the mix of urban and rural living that West Richland offers. This growth has attracted new businesses and spurred the addition of a new elementary and middle school. West Richland is prepared to welcome new commercial and industrial development with its open spaces, available land, and infrastructure.

West Richland’s Flat Top Park has become the center for numerous family events throughout the year, including Summer Concert Series, Hogs & Dogs, Fall Harvest Festival, Veteran’s Day Parade, and December’s Carols and Cocoa.
