Historic Homestead Tour left off list

-A A +A

Thank you for the story on upcoming New Mexico Centennial events in the Dec. 29 “Diversions,” however you missed an important one.   
The Los Alamos County Council enthusiastically supported the creation of a Historic Homestead Tour in Los Alamos, outside of Department of Energy land.  
In seven locations, 17 signs describing the history and extent of pre-Manhattan Project homesteads will be installed.
This tour was selected as a New Mexico Centennial project, appropriately so as homesteading was the principal activity during 1912 in the location we think of as Los Alamos.
A ceremony dedicating the tour, planned for May 18, is a New Mexico Centennial event. This day was chosen because it is close to the date when President Abraham Lincoln signed the Homestead Act in 1862.  
Los Alamos’ dedication ceremony will be listed, along with other events around the U.S., on the website of the Homestead National Monument of America as part of the sesquicentennial celebration.
