This is the former air compressor house–one of them, at least–which turned steam power into air power to drive machinery across the production line.
Rocket propellant and coolant were stored underground adjacent to the missile silo. This is the hallway that connects the missile area to the propellant area. Walking in this area was nice because the floor was dry.
Someone had helped themselves to one of the safety posters before my visit.
The second floor of one of the houses is done in bright blue. This building has since been severely vandalized.

Heavy wood doors for keeping people in.
