A program presented by the Manhattan Project National Historical Park on Saturday will give visitors some insight to what life was like in Oak Ridge during the Manhattan Project with all the security, the need for secrecy, and the worry of spies, a press release said.
The program is scheduled from 3:30-4:30 p.m. Saturday, December 2, at the Turnpike Gatehouse. It is free and open to the public. Parking is limited, so please try to carpool if possible, the press release said.
The nearby trails will be closed due to the December hunting schedule.
The Gatehouse is located at 2900 Oak Ridge Turnpike. Visitors can access the Turnpike Gatehouse from Oak Ridge by following the Oak Ridge Turnpike west as if you are leaving town. Parking will be next to the Gatehouse on the north side of the road.
For more information, visit the National Park desk in the American Museum of Science and Energy on South Tulane Avenue in Oak Ridge.
