Taking a Test Site Tour

In October 2019, the Western History Association hosted a tour of the Nevada Test Site (now the Nevada Nuclear Security Site). As part of the tour experience, attendees received a guide that featured oral history excerpts pertaining to the sites we visited from the Nevada Test Site Oral History Project. Below is the guide and other resources that help provide a journey through the test site landscape.


Additional information about activities that occurred at the Nevada Test Site can be found online at the NNSA Fact Sheet library. Additionally, historian and exhibit developer B. Erin Cole created an artistic chronicle of the tour entitled “The Desert Keeps Receipts.”
