100th Anniversary

Atomic City Tours :: Los Alamos Historical Tours Fuller Lodge
2017 is the 100th anniversary of the founding of the exclusive Los Alamos Ranch School.  It’s resort-like campus of 50+ buildings on the remote Pajarito Plateau made it attractive as the isolated place for developing atomic weaponry, if it could be done.  Project Y director J. Robert Oppenheimer DID NOT attend the Ranch School, but knew about it from vacationing in New Mexico as a young scientist.  He and Manhattan Engineer District commander, Gen. Leslie Groves, chose this inspiring location.  Come and learn more, much more.
