Local writers spotlight a piece of history that is right in our downtown area. Craig Martin and Heather McClenahan address the artifacts from another era in their book, “Of Logs and Stone: The Buildings of the Los Alamos Ranch School and Bathtub Row.”
The Los Alamos Historical Museum will host a book-signing event for the authors from 5:30-7 p.m. Monday.
The book features the history of and stories about the oldest buildings in Los Alamos—Fuller Lodge and the smaller structures in the downtown National Landmark District.
The buildings are linked not only by a common history, but by building materials. Each is constructed of stout ponderosa pine logs and the most common local rock, Bandelier tuff, thus the title of the book, “Of Logs and Stone.”
“About 10 years ago, while doing research for a book on housing in Los Alamos, I stumbled across some photos of Fuller Lodge under construction,” Martin said. “They were absolute treasures and I immediately felt that they should have a greater audience.”
