From the North Dakota AP News Wire:
COOPERSTOWN, N.D. (AP) - Friday is the grand opening of the Ronald Reagan Minuteman Missile State Historic Site near Cooperstown.
The underground nuclear missile control center once was used by military officials to monitor 10 nearby Minuteman III nuclear missiles. It's now been turned into a historic site commemorating North Dakota's contribution to the Cold War.
Construction of the facility was finished in 1965. It was decommissioned in 1997.
More than 800 people have visited the historic site since it opened two weeks ago. The State Historical Society says it expects many former Air Force missileers to be on hand for Friday's ribbon-cutting.
