Throwback Thursday: Graduates of Columbia High School, You’re Not Alone!
If you’re a proud graduate of Columbia High School in Richland, your school has been renamed. The building is the same, but no one knows what “Col Hi” is anymore. You’re not alone. You can commiserate with graduates of White Bluffs High School.
Their high school burned down in 1942. The following year the entire town of White Bluffs was burned down (on purpose) to make room for the Hanford Nuclear Reservation. Even the cemetery was removed (and transplanted to the East Prosser Cemetery).
