Homestead Driving Tour
Try to imagine Los Alamos without its neighborhoods, shops, parks, and national laboratory. Imagine yourself back in a time of isolated log buildings, fields planted with pinto beans, families tending and protecting the crops, wagons laden with produce for the autumn trip to the valley before the winter sets in—everyday life for the homesteaders who lived here before the dawn of the nuclear age that brought Los Alamos to international attention.
This tour will introduce you to seven sites that indicate where seventeen of the homestead families established their farms.
This tour is a collaborative project with Los Alamos County, the Historic Preservation Advisory Board, and the Los Alamos Historical Society.
