The Manhattan District Overlay (MDO) is a historic district covering 8.7 sq. miles (5500 acres) within the Oak Ridge city limits and encompassing roughly 6,000 residential units. The homes were built by the Federal Government to house employees and their families during the Manhattan Project. These units were not intended to be permanent residential structures, but as the Project came to a close, the Federal Government sold all housing units to willing buyers. To date, many of these structures have had few improvements, and continue to house a large portion of Oak Ridge’s 29,500 residents. The MDO area includes the following neighborhoods: Highland View, Scarboro, and Woodland.
