A history page for West Richland.

This is an excerpt taken from the above history page:
"Late, in 1953, businessmen of Enterprise and Heminger City circulated petitions and scheduled town meetings to ask support for combining the towns as West Richland. Enterprise residents felt that they could get more recognition with the name West Richland by cashing in on the publicity Richland received. From late 1953 until the final vote in March 1954 approving the name West Richland by a vote of 218 to 80, there was heated criticism from a minority led by Carl Heminger. Immediately following the final vote in favor of West Richland, Carl Heminger announced that he would sell out and move away."
