City Index

Benton County is somewhat remote and unpopulated. In 2010, the US Census Bureau reported a total of 175,177 residents. However, the largest city in the county, Kennewick, is also part of the Tri-Cities, which is a mid-sized metropolitan area, consisting of three adjacent cities: Kennewick, Pasco, and Richland. Also, West Richland, another neighboring city, is generally included within the scope of the Tri-Cities. All combined, the Tri-Cities area is the fourth largest metropolitan area in Washington.

In the more rural areas of Benton County, births, marriages, and deaths many times occur not in the town that the individual actually resided in, but in a neighboring town that may have had the facilities to assist with these life changing events. The index below was created to aid in locating neighboring communities.
