There’s An Unexpected Piece Of History Hiding Underground In South Dakota

This important part of the world’s history is the only one remaining fully intact and it lies in southwest South Dakota. At one point, this site occupied over 13,500 square miles and was placed to protect the entire United States during the extreme tensions between countries during the Cold War. Back when it was built, it was a top secret location. Today, it is open for visitors to see up close and learn about the lengths at which we would go to protect our homeland.

Stop by for a tour and you won’t regret it; you will leave with important knowledge of the past.
