Nike Missile Site HM-40 Key Largo, FL

Welcome to the Key Largo Nike Hercules Missile battery HM-40. This was a missile site holding Hercules missiles in response to the cuban missile crisis in the 1960's. About 5 were built around South Florida. This one (dubbed HM-40) Was abandoned in the late 70's and now is part of the Crocodile lake national refuge.



  This area is overseen by Monroe County sheriff and FWC (Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission). FWC Officers frequent the area but we had no unexpected visitors.
 Main Building
The compound is quite larger than I originally thought. Lots of housing rooms.


Very Remote.....

Creepy
