About Our Site - Quebec 01

Wyoming State Parks is currently in the process of having the Quebec 01 Missile Alert Facility transferred to the State of Wyoming as the newest state historic site.  This site is significant as the only accessible Peacekeeper Missile Alert Facility left in the world and will strive to preserve and interpret the Cold War history of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries, fostering an understanding of the mission and duties of the personnel and crews assigned to work there.  

Quebec 01 Missile Alert Facility State Historic Site, once open, will offer the visitor the opportunity to see a military installation that was “hidden in plain sight” and controlled one of the most destructive nuclear weapons ever built by the United States. Delve into the daily lives of missileers, topside personnel, missile technology, the Cold War and the deactivation of this missile system.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The staff of Wyoming’s new Quebec-1 State Historic Site invites the public to a special showing of the Minuteman Missile National Historic Site park orientation film, “Beneath the Plains: The Minuteman Missile on Alert.”

The film will be shown at 6:30 p.m., October 11 at the Wyoming State Museum. It is free and the public is invited.

The film illustrates how the fear of a Soviet nuclear attack motivated the United States to create the Minuteman missile at the height of the Cold War,” according to Superintendent Eric Leonard of the Minuteman Missile National Historic Site. The film includes interviews with historians and the men and women who operated the system in South Dakota and the other missile fields. The Minuteman National Historic Site is located near Philip, S.D.

The film features subtitles for the deaf, as well as an audio description soundtrack for visitors who are blind or have low vision.

Beneath The Plains was produced by Boston Productions Inc. (BPI), under contract to the National Park Service. BPI's creative team included Candy Moulton (producer), Mike Sullivan and Bob Noll (directors), and Ruth Mendelson (composer). Mark Southern and Eric Leonard of the National Park Service served as executive producers.

Funding for the film was provided by National Park Service entrance fees through a competitive process with other national park sites across the country. Other park projects funded by entrance fees include the visitor center exhibits installed in 2016 and the site improvements being constructed at Delta-01 and Delta-09 this summer.

Minuteman Missile National Historic Site's headquarters and visitor center is located off of exit 131, Interstate 90. The park consists of three sites along a 15-mile stretch of Interstate 90 in Western South Dakota.

Authorized by Congress in 1999, Minuteman Missile National Historic Site preserves components of the Minuteman II intercontinental ballistic missile system, interpreting the deterrent value of the land-based portion of America's nuclear defense during the Cold War era and commemorating the people and events associated with this recent period of American history.
