In Southern Glastonbury, Connecticut, there’s an abandoned site called the HA-25 Nike Missile Site. It is one of two associated sites, the second is located in Manchester. The site pictured here is largely a walking area, littered with trash and debris from people over the years. We stumbled upon a rather small looking hole in the ground that had large rocks along the way, but we still decided to descend into the ground. This turned out be the areas that the missiles were kept. There were remnants of blast shields and batteries, but after the facility was shut down in 1961 the rooms have become flooded and filled with graffiti.
