Stony Brook

Out in central Massachusetts is the former Stony Brook Air Force Station. Originally built by the Air Force Materiel Command in the 1950’s it was a major storage area for convention weapons as well as the storage and maintenance area for nuclear weapons for the neighboring Westover Air Force Base. The base was turned over to the Air Force Reserve in the mid 1970’s and Stony Brook was closed and handed over to the local municipality. Today the land is home to a jail as well as the Massachusetts Municipal Wholesale Electric Company (MMWEC). Two very kind employees from MMWEC were kind enough to grant me access to the area and show me around.
