What’s More American Than Living in an Abandoned Missile Silo?

If you are tired of living above ground and having windows — well, now you don’t have to. A converted Atlas-F missile silo in York, Nebraska, once home to a thermonuclear warhead, is on the market for $550,000. (“A BLAST from the past and built to last!” per the listing.) The current owner has used what can only be described as a light touch in converting the Cold War–era silo into a residence. It’s listed as a one-bed, one-bath but is something more akin to a loft: a single, circular room 174 feet below ground containing a toilet, bathtub, twin bed, fridge, and microwave. No laundry — you’ll have to send out (up) for that.
