Minuteman Missile National Historic Site

We stopped at Minuteman Missile National Historic Site on our way across South Dakota.  First we made a stop at Silo Delta-09.  It once stored a Minuteman II missile.  On one of the blast doors they had painted “delivery in 30 minutes or less or you next one is free.”  There were 150 Minuteman missiles in South Dakota and many more across the great plains.  They were manufactured during the Cold War.  There is no definite start or end date to the Cold War.  It was a struggle between the United States and the U.S.S.R. to build up a stock pile of weapons.  By 1967 the United States had 1,000 missiles.  At the visitor center we completed the Junior Ranger Program and watched a film.  They are just getting all the displays set up because it is a new National Park.  Learning about the missiles was very interesting.

    Hi Marcus,

    My wife(Jennifer) and grandson(Khyler) just missed you there. We were there on the 8th. And just went to the Jewel Cave yesterday. We are camping near Custer and are going to visit Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse today or tomorrow. So many things to do in this part of the country. Happy Travels, Rick
