Los Alamos History: Beyond Museum Walls



Summer is a great time to explore the long, deep history of people living on the Pajarito Plateau. Even though the History Museum is closed, evidence of Los Alamos history may be found beyond museum walls on the trails in and around our community. Some of the best ways to experience history are to walk in the footsteps of those who came before us and imagine the changes that have occurred through time. Explore the location of the first Los Alamos Ranch School graduation, the place where roads from two eras meet, and the mysteries of carved rocks. We invite you to visit our website losalamoshistory.org/explore-los-alamos for information and history about historic hikes around Los Alamos, including Camp Hamilton Trail, Graduation Canyon, Camp May, and Lujan Road.
