Pioneer Life

Below are a series of articles written by Burton Lum, a member of one of the pioneer families in the area. He gives us a view of what pioneer life was like in the Kennewick area in the late 1800's. These articles appeared in the Tri-City Herald as a weekly column from 1960-1962. Copies of the articles can be found at the newspaper collection of the Mid-Columbia Library, Kennewick, Washington.
