THE BUNKER RE-OPENS
Go underground and explore a secret government facility in Greenbrier County, West Virginia.
For over 30 years, The Greenbrier resort kept a huge secret hidden underground. To the public it was known as the West Virginia wing, to the US government, it was known as the Congressional Relocation Facility. The "Bunker" was designed to house the United States Congress in the event of a nuclear attack. In 1992, the secret was revealed by Ted Gup, an investigative reporter for The Washington Post.
During the 30 years that the bunker was a secret, groups were meeting there and enjoying theme parties and dinners, without realizing they were in a top-secret government facility. Public tours are now available after the Greenbrier has renovated much of the facility. Plan a trip to Greenbrier County and get a real feel for the government's fears during the Cold War.
