A Fun Fact About
Kennewick, WA

In 1996 during one of the Northwest’s largest and most unique festivals in Kennewick – the Tri-City Water Follies Unlimited hydroplane races and over-the-river airshow – a spectator made a major discovery. The skeletal remains of a prehistoric Paleoamerican man were found on a bank of the Columbia River. “Kennewick Man” is one of the most complete ancient skeletons ever found. Bone tests have shown it to date from 7000 to 6900 B.C.E. The origin of “Kennewick Man” has been debated in international scientific and cultural circles, as well as the courts.
