The 51,500-acre area was declared a national historic landmark in 1975. The landmark includes Base Camp, where the scientists and support group lived; Ground Zero, where the bomb was placed for the explosion; and the Schmidt/McDonald Ranch House, where the plutonium core to the bomb was assembled. Visitors to a Trinity Site Open House are given the opportunity to visit Jumbo, Ground Zero, and the Ranch House. In addition, one of the old instrumentation bunkers is visible beside the road just west of Ground Zero.
