I grew up in a small town in Tennessee called Oak Ridge. Most have never heard of it but basically it was a "secret city" built in 1942 for a specific reason that very few knew about. Not a lot of reading but a lot of pictures. Thought some of you might enjoy the pictures.

Secret city? I thought you grew up in Deliverance County? Or maybe Hazard County.

You sure got a purty mouth.

Well, that certainly explains a lot about H2.

When I was younger, I lived in Maryville, TN. and our school used to take class trips there between like 5th - 7th grade. I remember being really impressed at the time. I still have the atom bomb eraser I bought in the gift shop somewhere packed away with all that kind of stuff you keep from to show your kids. I think I'll have to dig it out and give it to my son.

Nice H2! I know a guy that lives in Oak Ridge. He's typing a response to your blog post right now!

I've been through there a few times on my way to Nashville! A lot of history there for sure.
I'm in a small unincorporated town call, and I kid you not, "Turkey Town" in the Tri-Cities area of North East Tennessee. Named so for the inordinantly large local population of these beasts wandering the woods, and occasionally my front yard.
It's about 15 minutes from Bristol, and 10 minutes from Johnson City and Elizabethton.
So, Hi! To a fellow NE Tennessee hillbilly I guess!
