Brief History of the Tri Cities
In 1891, Pasco was the first of the Tri-Cities to be incorporated which was also the largest city because of its railroad station. It was followed by Kennewick in 1904 and Richland in 1910. Pasco had the most land for easy irrigation and farming and was still the largest up until the founding of Hanford near Richland. Farming was the basis of almost each sector of the economy of the Tri Cities’ early years. In fact, even at present, agriculture is a big part of the Tri-Cities, Pasco in particular.
