Los Alamos County, situated in the beautiful state of New Mexico, has a rich history that dates back to the ancestral Pueblo people who called the region home in the 1200s. In the late 1800s and early 1900s, the area went through a influx of settlers with the Homestead Act, and Los Alamos Ranch School was established in 1917.

However, the turning point in Los Alamos County's history came in 1942 when the US government selected it as the primary site for the top-secret Manhattan Project, aimed at developing the world's first atomic bomb during World War II. The isolated location and the presence of qualified personnel from the Los Alamos Ranch School made it an ideal location for this historic endeavor.
