Abandoned by Men Embraced by Nature

Aug 15 2013

The Stanley R. Mickelsen Safeguard Complex - Missile Site Radar - was the control of the Safeguard Program established in the 1960’s. Inside its buildings were housed the computers and a phased array radar used to track and ping back at incoming ICBM warheads. The radar building itself is the forlorn Pyramid building. It was shut down and abandoned in 1976 just four months after initial operation. The MSR building and 430 acre site went up for sale in 2012 by the US Government and was sold for $530,000. The buildings still seemed to be unused though possible maintained.
