Pompano Beach, FL, October 10, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Fifty years ago this month, the United States and Russia seemed to be on the brink of a nuclear war. The Bay of Pigs U.S. invasion of Cuba and the Soviet erection of the Berlin War in 1961 were just a hint of what was to come in 1962 when it looked as though the Cold War was going to become World War III. In October 1962, newly elected President John F. Kennedy and Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev engaged in the ultimate “throw down” challenge. The possibility that one side may declare war on the other almost became a reality during the Cuban Missile Crisis, and many people on both sides lived in fear of a nuclear attack.
That period may be over, but some remnants of it remain in military facilities that have been transformed into homes for sale. Possibilities for purchase include a luxury home in the Adirondacks that was once a missile base ($1,760,000), the Lookout Mountain Laboratory in Los Angeles that was used by the U.S. government to study the effects of a nuclear bomb ($5,750,000), the satellite complex that was the first location to receive images from Neil Armstrong on the moon in 1969 ($3,000,000), and survivor condos built into a former missile base in Kansas ($3,000,000).
