Located just north of Madison, Indiana, the old Jefferson Proving Ground was a testing site for ammunition of all times. Feature both a bombing and artillery range,this facility was instrumental in making sure that American soldiers received only the best possible munitions.
|View out across the abandoned runways, now growing over with grass.|
|Another view across the airstrip. Its really huge..|
|The hanger still retains its artwork, but the large bay doors have been removed and blocked over.|
|Office area attached to hanger, with large bay windows. Was this the controller station?|
|Other side of bay door. The damage to the bricks looks to be caused by gunfire.|
|A steel door blocks off this area, and it looks to be period.|
|The interior is filled with metal racks. Perhaps this was a magazine?|
|Another shot down the runway. Yea, most of the place looks like this. Its huge.|
|While the hanger has been re-purposed rather than torn down, it wasn't really preserved all that well. It barely resembles its old self, but at least its standing I suppose.|
|Another shot of the building as we leave.|
