Wendover Military Area

1600 CLUI photo

Contained within a fenced compound at the east end of the airbase is the only remaining dedicated military land left on the Wendover Airbase. On about 165 acres behind the chain link are fifty or so buildings used for training by the Air Force and the reserves. The rows of huts were built in the 1980s as simple barracks and administrative buildings. The row in the middle are washhouses, where the water remains heated all year long, in case someone needs a shower. Occasionally a helicopter lands here so the crew can refresh themselves with a soda from the Doctor Pepper machine. This fenced compound was also the site of a large military salvage yard, in use through the 1970s, full of aircraft parts, vehicles, machine guns, and other hardware. The yard was cleared for the construction of what you see there today.
