Bombs to Wine in the Horse Heaven Hills

A portion of the south slope of the Horse Heaven Hills south of Prosser was for a time used as bombing range during WWII and into the 1950s. The use as a bombing range was discontinued and the land use switched to new range - for cattle and dry land wheat. Irrigation has converted the land yet again to vineyards and further south to orchards.
