This collection is a list of the Department of Energy's Manhattan Project "Signature Facilities" approved by the Departmental Corporate Board on Historic Preservation in December 1999. Taken together, the eight Signature Facilities provide the core for DOE's ability to successfully interpret, whether in situ or through museum or other interpretive setting, the Manhattan Project mission of developing atomic bombs during World War II. This list does not preclude protection and preservation of other historic facilities in the nuclear-weapons complex. Just as these facilities constitute the core for DOE-wide preservation, access, and interpretation, sites may have site-specific signature facilities that best interpret that site's Manhattan Project mission from a local, state, regional, national or international perspective.
