Salazar Recommends Manhattan Project National Park

........................................................................................................................................................................................

U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar is recommending that Congress establish a national historical park to commemorate the top-secret World War II Manhattan Project that developed the atomic bomb.

Salazar said the development of the atomic bomb in multiple locations across the United States is an important story and one of the most transformative events in the nation’s history.

The National Park Service conducted a special resource study on several Manhattan Project sites for possible inclusion in the National Park System. The study was released to Congress this week.

It recommends establishing a park at three sites where much of the scientific activity occurred: Los Alamos, Hanford, Wash., and Oak Ridge, Tenn.
