Former Base Headquarters/Dixon Rentals

1613 CLUI photoThis building is the original base headquarters, where base administration and command was centered. It has been radically modified for use as a public storage facility, and is now privately owned. In 1944 and 1945, the building housed the offices for Colonel Tibbets, the commander of the Enola Gay. Tibbets selected Wendover for the training site for the atomic bombing raid on Japan, and is said to have declared when he first came to the area, "the end of the world, perfect."
