K-25 History Center Event
October 19, 2017 @ 2:00 am - 4:00 pm
On October 19, 2017, a multi-phase project begins with an event to walk through the future home of the K-25 History Center, and unveil its plans and layout before construction starts later this fall. Next year, construction is scheduled to begin on the Equipment Building and Viewing Tower, adjacent to the Manhattan Project National Historical Park.
When crews finished constructing Building K-25 in 1945, it was the largest structure in the world. Its size was only rivaled by the importance of its mission—to help end a global war. Despite its 44-acre footprint and urgent work, the public would not learn of its existence in the Secret City until the end of World War II.
Although the building is no longer standing, DOE’s Oak Ridge Office of Environmental Management and its partners understand the historical significance of the site and have made a substantial investment to ensure future generations from across the world can hear and understand the amazing story behind the men and women who constructed and operated the
former K-25 site.
