Nuclear Tourism in Wyoming?
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — State officials are holding a public meeting in Cheyenne to discuss their agreement with the U.S. Air Force as part of a plan to turn a Cold War-era missile alert facility into a tourist attraction.
Wyoming State Parks, Historic Sites and Trails staff members will provide an update on the Quebec-1 Missile Alert Facility at Monday evening's meeting in the State Museum.
The state and F.E. Warren Air Force Base signed an agreement this month that paves the way for the building to be turned into an interpretive museum and historical site.
State officials say negotiations are continuing.
The 5-acre facility built in 1962 was used by airmen who monitored nuclear intercontinental ballistic missiles. It was deactivated in 2005 and military officials initially planned to demolish it.
