Walk through Oak Ridge history

-A A +A

Manhattan Project Historical National Park will present a free walk-and-talk tour through Alvin K. Bissell Park, Oak Ridge, beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday.

The easy to moderate 1-mile walk will start at the American Museum of Science and Energy at 300 S. Tulane Ave., Oak Ridge.

Discussion will focus on different lifestyles and challenges that Oak Ridge residents faced during the project. Walkers will visit some historical structures and discuss how the town has changed and how it has stayed the same in the city’s 75th anniversary.

Visitors should be prepared for this walk with weather-appropriate clothing and sturdy shoes.
