Mountain Home AFB, Idaho Historical Events



1970's-80's
I was up in Idaho for almost four years, stationed at Mtn. Home AFB. I remember seeing a few trucks going up the mountainside on the outskirts of the town. I used to take my bicycle (pre-mountain bike days), up to the quarry site and challenge the hills. One day as I made it up on steep hill, I saw several earthmovers filling in what looked like bunkers.
A friend of mine who was stationed at Mtn. Home AFB when it was a SAC base many years before I got there told me there were a few missile silos back there and they were inactive. I told them I saw several large earthmovers filling in what looked like bunkers. My friend told me they were silos.
As for the town of Mtn Home, my landlord up there said the town was originally up in the mountain range and the house I rented from her (on Daniels Rd) was relocated from the original site of Mtn. Home. The town for some reason sits on virtually flat land.
