Los Alamos is one of three areas "identified as containing exceptionally significant historical properties that, when taken together, represent one of the most important events of the twentieth century."

Exceptionally significant historic buildings and structures

Associated with World War II and the Cold War, 35 exceptionally significant historic buildings and structures at LANL are candidates for long-term retention and management.

Seventeen properties supported the wartime Manhattan Project and are potentially contributing properties to the existing Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory (LASL) National Historic Landmark (NHL) District.

These 17 properties may someday be part of a Los Alamos unit of the proposed Manhattan Project National Historical Park.
