DISCOVER OUR SECRETS: Take a tour off the beaten path

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

There’s more to see in Los Alamos than just what can be spotted through the windshield of your car. There are several walking and bus tours that take visitors off the main drag and onto unbeaten paths.

Los Alamos Historical Museum offers a tour that provides the complete history of Los Alamos. Museum Director Hedy Dunn said highlights of the tour include the Tewa ancestral pueblo, which dates back to 1225; Fuller Lodge; a memorial of the Ice House, which housed nuclear components for the Trinity device; and the World War II Army cafeteria that now serves at the Los Alamos Little Theater.

The tour is only about one mile in length, and “you see a lot of different aspects of our history,” Dunn said.

She added the tour was started in 1979 as Boy Scout John Polzer’s Eagle Scout project. Dunn said she remembers Polzer asking what he could do for his project and Dunn recommended a historic tour.
