K-25 Overlook and Visitor Center

Welcome to the K-25 Overlook & Visitor Center, where the town of Happy Valley once existed!  The newly refurbished center provides a snapshot of the area's historical significance through photographs.  Plan to stop here to pick up brochures and information about Roane County and the Manhattan Project. 

Look out over K-25 - once an important hub for activites that helped end WWII - that now is the Heritage Center business park;

Discover the Secret City and how more than 75,000 people quietly assembled to create a workforce and a town that didn’t appear on any map;

Learn about the museums and historic sites to visit that are part of the Manhattan Project National HIstoric Park (MAPR); and

Enjoy recreation in the area, that includes walking and biking trails, dog park, and access to the Clinch River and Melton Hill Lake. 

The center is open daily year-round during daylight hours.
