Mission Statement

Minuteman Missile National Historic Site is a one-of-a-kind National Park Service historic site established to explore the history and significance of the Cold War, including the arms race and ICBM development. Under the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START) signed in 1991 by U.S. President George Bush and Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev, the U.S. and U.S.S.R. began to reduce their stockpiles of nuclear arms. As Minuteman II missile sites were deactivated, the U.S. Air Force (USAF) and National Park Service worked toward preserving a representative site to illustrate the history and significance of the Cold War, the arms race, and the dedication of USAF personnel.

Description
