Before becoming officially incorporated as a city on February 5, 1904, Kennewick Wa was known by a number of different names, including “Tehe”—named for a native girl’s laughter in reaction to being asked for the region’s name. In the early 20th century, Kennewick was known for its creamery, grape juice factory, and home to the Northern Pacific Railroad. Kennewick is known world wide for the "Kennewick Man."
