History buffs and curious onlookers young and old are encouraged to attend a tour on Saturday of one Weld County’s most storied historical landmarks.
From 1-4 p.m. spectators will be led on free expeditions throughout the Atlas-E Missile Silo near Windsor — a site that housed nuclear warheads during the Cold War era. The site was built in 1961 and deactivated in 1965 before being turned over to the county.
Tour highlights will include exploring the missile bay, generator room, crew quarters and the command center of the once-active missile site. It is the only missile silo open to the public in Weld County, according to a news release.
For more information about the tours, call Kenneth Robinson at (970) 397-8541.
