109 East Palace: A 400-year Microcosm of Santa Fe
The address of 109 East Palace Avenue in Santa Fe is most well-known for its role in the Manhattan Project. It is the office where the gatekeeper, Dorothy McKibbin, met the scientists and other workers who were on their way to Los Alamos for the top-secret WWII project. The history of the site, though, goes back 400 years and includes some of the most colorful characters in New Mexico history. John Ruminer, who has written a Los Alamos Historical Society "Nutshell" publication on 109 East Palace, will tell their tale.
