Welcome to Historic Downtown Prosser Association

Prosser, the Birthplace of the Washington Wine Industry, is bordered on the north by the Rattlesnake Hills and on the south by the Horse Heaven Hills with the Yakima River running through. Prosser boasts 300 sunny days annually, lending to a wide range of outdoor activities such as hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, boating, and golf.  Prosser offers its citizens a “small town” quality of life with an ever-growing number of shops, wineries, restaurants, and galleries.
