Living in Pasco, WA
The Pasco area was home to some of North America's earliest human inhabitants, the most famous being the Kennewick man, a 9,300 year old skeleton that was found in the Columbia River.
As the current seat of Franklin County, Pasco's thriving economy is due in large part to the Grand Coulee Dam. Built in 1941, the dam across the mighty Columbia River has made the lifeline of irrigated water a major promoter of the city's modern industries. Top employers in the city include the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad, the local city government, the Douglas Fruit Company, and many others, making rentals in Pasco a best bet for area employment.
