In Focus has a really fantastic photo piece on the old community of Oak Ridge, Tennessee which at one point during WWII was the secret home base of the development of the atomic bomb. The infamous Manhattan Project was located here and the folks who lived here were sworn to complete secrecy. The citizens who worked there were not normally allowed to leave the facility as it was fenced in and protected like any usual government property. Today, Oak Ridge exists still, but not as a government property since the town became incorporated at the end of the 50s.
