Katie the Calutron Girl

Your Tour Guide for the Secret City

Well hello there! I’m Katie and I’ve been living here in Oak Ridge, Tennessee (the Secret City) since the 1940s. I worked on the Manhattan Project as one of Oak Ridge’s famous Calutron Girls back then, but now that the war is over, we’re ready to share our secrets with everyone. Join me as I show you everything our wonderful little hidden gem in the south has to offer!
