For 42 years, the Los Alamos Historical Society has operated the Los Alamos History Museum but as the society turns its attention to the house formerly owned by Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer, it finds itself in unfamiliar territory.
Fortunately, the historic society earned a $3,750 grant from the New Mexico Humanities Council as well as a $2,400 grant from the National Trust for Historic Preservation. These grants will offer guidance to the society as it begins initial steps to operate a historic home museum.
The guidance will come in the form of a planning symposium, which will be held Sept. 23-24 at Fuller Lodge and the Best Western Hilltop House. In addition to historic home experts, representatives from the National Park Service, the National Trust and the New Mexico Office of Historic Preservation, Martin Sherwin, who won the Pulitzer for his book “American Prometheus,” and Jon Hunner, the director of the public history program at New Mexico State University and author of “J. Robert Oppenheimer, the Cold War and the Atomic West” and “Inventing Los Alamos,” will attend the symposium.
