The Atomic Heritage Foundation (AHF) is pleased to announce that T-shirts for Oak Ridge, TN, one of the three sites of the Manhattan Project National Historical Park, are now available on our online store. AHF’s online store also has T-shirts for the other two Manhattan Project National Historical Park sites, featuring the Los Alamos Main Gate and the B Reactor at Hanford. Be the first to get all three!
The Oak Ridge T-shirts depict the historic Chapel on the Hill. Constructed in 1943 following standard Army design, the chapel was shared by 22 distinct religious organizations during World War II, including Catholic, Jewish, and Protestant congregations. “So many people were married or born or baptized or confirmed in that church,” Manhattan Project veteran Ted Rockwell remembered. “It was a real landmark for so many people.” Rockwell and his wife Mary were among the many Oak Ridgers who were married there.
The National Park Service has approved AHF’s use of the words “Manhattan Project National Historical Park” for the T-shirts. They are great as souvenirs and to show your pride in Oak Ridge’s storied history as a “Secret City” in the Manhattan Project.
Made from high quality 100% cotton, the T-shirt costs $19.95 and comes in sapphire blue. It is available in adult sizes small, medium, large, extra-large, 2XL, and 3XL.
Celebrate the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service and one of the newest parks with an Oak Ridge T-shirt! You will help encourage others to visit Oak Ridge and see the Manhattan Project sites for themselves.
