Living At Los Alamos

This 8 page article is a great resource for information on the acquisition of the land in Northern New Mexico that is now Los Alamos.  It reveals the way the Army manipulated the Boy’s Ranch School out 54,000 acres, including 8900 acres of forest land, that was to be used for a ‘demolition range’. The scientists of the Manhattan Project were given the 27 houses and the 27 buildings and the current residents were evicted with 2 weeks notice. 1500 people literally pushed the students out of their homes and moved right in.  The story of the construction of Laboratory buildings, the cost and the expectations of the new residents are told in the article that is a very good read.
