The Manhattan Project National Historical Park will present a program on Saturday, April 28, starting at 3:30 p.m. at the Turnpike Gatehouse in Oak Ridge. The program 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. This program is free and open to the public; parking is limited, so, please try to carpool if possible.
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. For more information, visit the National Park desk in the Children’s Museum of Oak Ridge.
