Lunch & Learn: Stories from the Secret City

Join Ray Smith, former Oak Ridge Historian to learn about the history and legacy of this fascinating site, through funny and moving stories.

The Tennessee city of Oak Ridge was established by the US government in 1942 to serve as a home base to the Manhattan Project, and soon after became known as the Secret City.

Stories from the Secret City will feature its history in photos, video and stories from the Manhattan Project to present day missions. The presentation will include many historic images by Ed Westcott, the official photographer for the Manhattan Project. Also, an update on the implementation of the Manhattan Project National Historical Park will be provided.

With over 47 years living and working in Oak Ridge, Ray Smith has developed an extensive understanding and appreciation of the heritage of the city’s history, especially the Manhattan Project era and resulting technological advances during ensuing years.

Bring your lunch and enjoy a lecture while you eat. All programs are FREE to the public. For those unable to attend the Lunch and Learn, the event will be Livestreamed on the Tennessee State Museum’s Facebook Page.
