The Article: Hanford Site

Interesting Fact: In 1942 the Army Corps of Engineers decided that an area in Washington State 586 square miles in size, was ideal for building a massive plutonium production complex.  The federal government took over this area under eminent domain requiring the relocation of approximately 1,500 people.
