Historic Fuller Lodge

Welcome to Los Alamos, the Secret City hidden in the mountains of Northern New Mexico, the birthplace of the atomic bomb, the home of cougars, elk and bears, and a city of nearly 9,000 residents.

Fuller Lodge was the main building of a private ranch school for teen boys from 1917 until 1943. In late 1942, the building and surrounding area was purchased by the US Army for the Manhattan Project, and eventually turned into Los Alamos National Laboratory and the county of Los Alamos. Today, the Lodge is home to the Fuller Lodge Art Center, with many additional areas available for special events or just visiting. Fuller Lodge is also one of the stops on the Historic Walking Tour of Los Alamos.

Fun Fact: This Arts & Crafts era light fixture was the inspiration for our logo!

NOTE: Reservations for the historic Fuller Lodge are managed by Los Alamos County (not the Art Center). Please see the Los Alamos County website for details.
