Relics of the Cold War

Posted on

Vint Hill Farm, prior to WWII, was a working farm. But, when the owner informed a friend who was in the army that he could listen to German cab drivers on his shortwave radio, it became the center of our efforts to win WWII, and subsequently the home to our intelligence and reconnaissance efforts, including the NSA and the Army Security Agency. Vint Hill Farm Station was an active army base until the end of the Cold War when it was closed and turned over to local officials for development. While there has been lots of development of the area, some of the original military buildings still stand, though converted to new uses. The Bachelor Officer Quarters (BOQ) is now Vint Hill Inn, a quaint B&B and conference venue. The base theater now has live performances. The original Vint Hill farm barns, were converted to military use, and are now a winery and brewery. The smaller building at the right is a cafe, and the Cold War Museum is between it and the barns. The big white building was where recon film was processed. The Cold War Museum, home to many Cold War relics, is open for public tours on weekends. Some of the exhibits in the Museum.
