Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) Visitor Overlook

March 2002

Overlook Facility
Note: The visitor overlook was previously (before September 11, 2001) open for self-guided, public tours, but access to the road to ORNL is currently restricted by security checkpoints. I recommend contacting the American Museum of Science and Energy in Oak Ridge for the latest details on how to visit these areas.

Slide Show Projection Screen Although the general area was previously open to public access, it is clear that the visitor overlook has been neglected for at least a couple years or more. I last personally visited it in 1995, at which time the facility was in good shape, and the video equipment was still operating. This is clearly no longer the case, and has not been for quite some time.

They used to show a slide show on this screen, and there used to be benches to sit on while watching.

Boarded Over Projection Booth The projection booth has been boarded over.

If I remember correctly, it was previously unattended, and one would push a button to start the show.

From Overlook towards Holifield Facility At right is the overlook view towards the Holifield Radioactive Ion Beam Facility (HRIBF brief description).

The sign is no longer there.

Quote of the moment
One thing I hate about the New Deal is that it is killing what, to me, is the American pioneering spirit. I simply do not know what to tell my own boys, leaving school and confronting this new world whose ideal is Security and whose practice is dependence upon government instead of upon one’s self.... All the old character-values seem simply insane from a practical point of view; the self-reliant, the independent, the courageous man is penalized from every direction ... [ellipses in source]
~ Rose Wilder Lane (1886–1968), U.S. author. As quoted in The Ghost in the Little House, ch. 14, by William V. Holtz (1993).

In a journal entry dated April 15, 1937, commenting on the domestic policies of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (1882-1945; President, 1933-1945). ~
