FrontOfGreenbrierAtNight.jpg The secret is out. The former U.S. Government Relocation Facility is now open. Explore the 112,000-square foot hideaway beneath The Greenbrier, an Award winning luxury resort located in the town of White Sulphur Springs in Greenbrier County, West Virginia. greebrier_doors_blog.jpg The site remained a top level secret until 1992 when the Washington Post published an article titled "The Ultimate Congressional Hideaway". Read the full article here. The underground facility contained a dormitory, kitchen, hospital and even a broadcast center for members of Congress. greenbrieri_dentist_chair.jpg The broadcast center (below) had backdrops to make it appear members of Congress were actually broadcasting from Washington, D.C., by changing the backdrop for each season-- a 100-foot radio tower was installed some miles away for these broadcasts. greenbrier_press_room.jpg The facility was built over 3 years from 1959 and 1962 and as you can see below the computer hardware hasn't changed much since. greenbrier_computer.jpg Here's the current secret entrance used for daily tours of the facility. secret_entrance_greenbrier.jpg Visit the official Greenbrier hotel site for details on the tour and the hotel.
