I have started reading a book titled: "The Girls of Atomic City" that documents the lives of some of the people who were there working on the project - they just didn't know what they were working on.

There were many types of houses available to the workers, from temporary dwellings to more permanent ones. This Flat Top house was set up at the museum and open for us to see.
