Title

Harry and Juanita Anderson Collection (Hanford-White Bluffs Pioneer Association)

Description

This collection consists of documents pertaining to the residents of White Bluffs, Hanford, and the surrounding areas that were forced by the government to sell their land and leave the area, in order to make way for the Manhattan Project. Housed in the collection is information regarding the reunions and picnics that were held for the families affected by the relocation. There are numerous correspondences that give an intimate look into the thoughts and feelings of the residents who were forced to sell their land; and where they ended up years later. There are land appraisals from the government documenting how much each tract of land was worth. Also included are several maps that give a more in depth look at who owned each plot of land, and where it was located in respect to where the town was.
