Built in the 1950's, closed in 1971, land sold to the City of Atlanta as a possible second airport site, now used as a park for horse riders. Only one building still stands above ground, it is supposedly still "hot" on the inside. Some of the buildings may have been below ground only, my understanding is that all were connected by tunnels and passageways, and many offices and testing facilities were underground.
