Over half a century ago, the United States embarked on one of the greatest engineering projects of all time. This venture (under the direction of the U.S. Army's "Manhattan Engineer District") had as its goal the development of the world's first atomic bomb.

In communities across the United States, thousands of scientists, and ordinary citizens alike, set about their task in complete secrecy. In most cases, even those involved in the project were unaware of the true nature of their work, or the dangers involved. One community involved in this effort, was the Town of Tonawanda, New York.

Hidden and largely ignored, the remnants of a war-time uranium refinery remain here, its radioactive secret still dangerous thousands of years into the future. F.A.C.T.S. is committed to ensuring that we not pass this along as our lethal legacy to countless future generations.
