The Nevada Test Site Historical Foundation, was established on April 15, 1998.  The Foundation is partnering with the U.S. Department of Energy and the Desert Research Institute to build a research center, records repository, and display area, the Nevada Atomic Testing History Institute (NATHI).  The NATHI will consolidate, preserve, and make accessible to the public historical and archival records, films, and photographs, as well as testing and archeological artifacts associated with the Nevada Test Site.


The mission of the Nevada Test Site Historical Foundation is to establish, promote, and maintain a nuclear testing history institute for scientific, historical, educational, and charitable purposes.  The Foundation will organize volunteer services, acquire and donate monies, exhibit materials, and facilitate land and building acquisitions for the Nevada Atomic Testing History Institute (NATHI).  The NATHI will consolidate, preserve, and make accessible to the public historical and archival records, films, photographs, testing and archeological artifacts associated with the Nevada Test Site.

The purpose of this Web site is to introduce you to the work of the Nevada Test Site Historical Foundation and its partners.  We are dedicated to preserving and displaying the documents and artifacts relating to the history of nuclear device testing, nuclear rocket engine development, and other nuclear experiments of the United States.
