Here are sample photos from 4 renovated missile silos.  The first one shown is a school made from an abondoned missile silo that is of the Atlas E type (where the missile had originally laid on its side) and the last 3 sets of photos are from different Atlas F sites where the missile was held upright in a deep underground holding.  See our 'History of Missile Bases' page for more information about the site details.
School sign for Jackson Heights

 

Jackson Heights School, a Kansas high school has been built in an Atlas E missile site.

Originally built for 3.3 million in the early 1960s, and abandoned in the late 1970s, the school district bought the complex for $1 from the federal government, and the building was transformed into something that would benefit the community.

The missile bay has become a bus garage, the command center turned into a classroom, and teenagers from area communities replace the military officers who once patrolled the grounds.

The Jackson County silo was one of many in Kansas that were put to new uses as the military shut them down in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, closing the last one in 1986. School districts, companies and private buyers took advantage of the opportunity to possess the expansive, virtually impregnable fortresses.
