Ohio Missile Sites
This is an in-progress photo and and video series documenting decommission Nike missile sites in Ohio. The missile sites were built during the Cold War (twelve in Ohio and close to 300 on U.S. soil); the last site was closed of June in of 1971.
The sites and land were handed over to municipal powers and generally tuned into parks, city buildings, schools/community colleges, senior centers, marinas, etc. On the chance the city did not want the site, they were auctioned into the private sector.
I document the site regardless of whether or not the missile cavity and buildings still exist.
