Pasco - 100 Years in Pictures

The object of this book is to tell the history of Pasco during its first 100 years with pictures, each accompanied with brief narration. but the history of our town could not be written in isolation from the adjacent areas up county, so we have selected a representative set of pictures from there also. Yet this does not purport to be a history of Franklin County as such.

Kin-I-Wak, Kenewick, Tehe, Kennewick

A hard bound book primarily about Kennewick. The chapters are essentially as they appeared in the various issues of "The Courier."
