During the cold war, north-central Arkansas, like other places around the country, was home to Titan missile silos. They’re empty now. Some sites are obliterated. Some are preserved. Some are even used as homes.

While roaming through rural north-central Arkansas, we came across a signpost for Misslebase Road. ( It’s misspelled that way on the road marker, and dutifully copied by Google maps) So naturally, we had to go looking for it. We didn’t see anything from the road, but found it on Google maps.
