Bandelier CCC Historic District, also known as Bandelier Buildings and Frijoles Canyon Lodge, is a historic district within Bandelier National Monument, in Los Alamos County, New Mexico. It preserves a set of 31 park buildings of pueblo revival design. The district contains a high degree of craftsmanship and architectural unity.[3]

The Bandelier CCC camp employed several thousand men from 1933 to 1941 as a New Deal Civilian Conservation Corps project. In 1943, camp provided temporary housing for scientists, technicians, and their families involved in the secret Manhattan Project at nearby Los Alamos. Construction contractors were housed there in early 1944.[3]

The district was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1987.[3][2][4]
