Preserving Memories at The Alexander Guest House

Oak Ridge, Tennessee: also know as "The Secret City," among other nicknames. Established in 1942, Oak Ridge was used primarily as a construction site for the Manhattan Project:  the massive operation in World War II that built the atomic bomb. 

This is interesting, but how does it relate to senior living?

First, some more history. The Manhattan Project, being the secretive and massive undertaking that it was, required a lot of attention from the government. This attention required an important place for officials and scientists to lodge while they were in town. The Alexander Inn would primarily house important visitors to Oak Ridge and was later used as a hotel.
