History Left A Definite Mark At This One Fascinating Spot In South Dakota
During the Cold War, from the 1960s to the early 1990s, South Dakota was home to a huge missile field that contained more than 150 Minuteman Missiles. Luckily, the mark left by history is much smaller that it could have been. Today, you can visit a launch control facility and even see a Minuteman Missile in its silo.
