Creation Date



The Willow missile site was operational from 1962-65 and the historic marker for the site will be observed at a Friday (November 10) ceremony at 2 p.m. The one pic includes the Quonset hut (in the background) that is seen in the other photo's lower right. To the far right of the Quonset hut is the concrete above-ground entrance that the Air Force crews used to enter and exit the site, which is visible in the 1960s photo beneath the missile. The grain storage tanks to the right of the current pic sit on top of the silo where the missile was stored.
