Los Alamos History Museum Celebrates Ranch School

The 100th anniversary of the Ranch School is being celebrated throughout Los Alamos. The newest exhibit at Fuller Lodge Art Center pays tribute to the Ranch School and right down the street, the Los Alamos History Museum also is celebrating the school in one of its exhibits. Museum Shop Manager and Volunteer Coordinator Todd Nichols explained that the exhibit started in the beginning of August and should be displayed for at least the next three months.

One of the pieces in the exhibit is a portion of a tree trunk that belonged to one of two ponderosa pine trees that grew in front of the Guest Gottage but needed to be cut down in 2016. The rings on the tree trunk mark several milestones and major events that happened in Los Alamos. Photo by Kirsten Laskey/ladailypost.com

Another piece in the exhibit is a painting by Robyn Church Hutton, who is the great-granddaughter of Ashley Pond Jr., the founder of the Ranch School. Photo by Kirsten Laskey/ladailypost.com
