from the blurb -
The Las Vegas house shown on these pages is a sort of stage set for the Nuclear Age. Located 25 feet below-ground, it’s not a casino attraction or a subterranean Brady Bunch pad for nostalgic high rollers but something more extreme: a relic of that odd and delusional moment during the Cold War when our government tried convincing us that the prospect of a nuclear attack was neither unthinkable nor hopeless. We could survive, they told us, if we prepared.
more info -
The underground complex of Girard B. Henderson was completed in 1978, five years before his death. The elaborate bomb shelter is located beneath a typical two-story suburban house in Las Vegas. Although the house was later sold, the shelter is still intact and is occasionally rented out for corporate events and parties.
