What’s Hidden Underground In This Field In Nebraska Is Unexpected But Awesome
If you were to drive past this field just outside of Kimball (in the far southwestern corner of the panhandle), you’d see a few unremarkable-looking buildings from a distance. A couple of Quonset huts and two mobile homes seem to be the only points of interest around here. But, if you were able to get through the gates to move a little closer, you’d see what looks like the beginning of a tunnel carved into the earth… which leads to the strangest home you’ve ever seen. This unremarkable field holds one of the few underground bunkers in Nebraska. And this intriguing missile site home in Nebraska is a sight to behold!
This video gives a guided tour of the home’s interior, along with more information about its solid construction and what it’s like to live underground in one of these Nebraska missile silos. The owner sometimes gives tours of their incredibly unique home. You can find more information on their website. And guess what? As of 2021, the property is for sale!
Given the opportunity, would you ever choose to live underground in a home like this? Do you know of any more underground bunkers in Nebraska or abandoned missile silos near you? If so we’d love to hear about it.

What are some unique places in Nebraska?
We feel like Nebraska just doesn’t get enough credit. It’s more than just farmland and plains! There are all kinds of strange and wonderful things to do in this state, like Carhenge, in Alliance. Created as a way to honor his father in 1982, artist Jim Reinders created a replica of Stonehenge, but with cars, trucks, and even an ambulance. It’s weird, but it’s fun. In Taylor, you’ll find semi-spooky plywood cut-outs of people who would have lived there at its peak, around 1890 to 1920. Monowi, Nebraska, is known as the United States’ smallest town. It has a population of exactly one – a woman named Elsie, who is also the mayor, owner of the town’s only tavern, and, well, everything else. She pays taxes – to herself – and goes to herself to get things like a liquor license. Honestly, sounds pretty nice to us!
Are there any interesting, mysterious places in Nebraska?
Nebraska is a plenty mysterious place – you just need to know where to look. There are loads of places that are said to be haunted, cursed, or just creepy in general! Some of our favorites include the old Alliance Theatre, in, well, Alliance, which is haunted by shadows, cold spots, orbs, and more. It’s not quite known when the creepy stuff began – it just kind of seems to have always been there. There are also some truly eerie cemeteries, like Ball Cemetery, in Springfield, said to be home to numerous restless spirits; if exploring old cemeteries isn’t your thing, no worries – there’s more! Lincoln’s Antelope Park is said to be haunted, as is the state college in Wayne. Then, there’s Seven Sisters Road – formally known as “Road L” – near Nebraska City. It’s said to be haunted by seven young women who were hanged by either their father or a brother way back in the day, and you can still hear their screaming.
