Rare & Historic “Hard Assets”

Acquisition & Sales of

Missile Bases & Underground Structures

Engineered by the Department of Defense, hardened against a nuclear event with earth-contact and tons of steel and concrete, they are some of the strongest structures ever constructed. They were each built at the cost of millions of taxpayer dollars.

Bringing new meaning to the word "shelter," missile bases and bunkers are built to stand the test of time. They will offer privacy, security and functionality for generations to come. We consider these underground fortresses the 20th Century’s counterpart of the fortified castles of Europe, hence our business name, 20th Century Castles, LLC.

 

If you are seeking a worthy investment, these highly sought after “hard assets," certainly continue to appreciate in value. They are rare, collectable real estate and represent a multimillion dollar head-start on any retrofit project. Particularly given the current economic, geopolitical, and environmental conditions, investing your money into such a structure can create long-term value. Can you envision one of these hardened structures in your future?  We can make it happen.

About Us

Edward Peden and Dianna Ricke-Peden

 

Co-founders of 20th Century Castles, LLC in 1995. Edward is a historian and former high school teacher. Dianna is a speech-language pathologist in the public school system. For 30 years, we have been transforming a cold and dark missile base into a warm and inviting home we call Subterra Castle. www.subterracastle.com It has been the best investment of our lives.
 

We have enjoyed working in this niche market and have become experts in underground hardened structures.    To date, we have explored over 90 underground sites and our business has sold 59 properties though they are increasingly difficult to find. Maybe you’ve seen us on TV. We’ve enjoyed worldwide media exposure as we have pioneered the acquisition and marketing of these historic properties. We are truly living “the dream” of site transformation underground.
