The Oak Ridge Reservation (where Oak Ridge National Laboratory is located
along with some weapons facilities) also had some towns and many homesites.
 Buildings were not torn down, unless something else was to be built, but
nearly 60 years of recovery of natural ecosystems has certainly changed the

pallida (or some cultivar thereof) and I. germanica.  Lots and lots of I.
cristata.  Wonderfully restored habitat for a lot of dwindling populations of
plants and wildlife. Prime development property : <
