Abandoned Communication Bunker in Georgia With Pictures!
< on 12/27/2019 6:20 AM >
Posted on Forum: UER ForumQuote
Recently explored what turned out to be an AT&T communication bunker from the cold war. While the lower level being underground was flooded by an inch or so of water, the bunker was remarkably mostly untouched. While it had been built in the 60s it had been in use up until 10 years or so ago when it was purchased by American tower.

The top floor of the bunker was mostly office space. There was a section of cubicles still with computers papers and even business cards. There was also a breakroom, bathrooms, office and other miscellaneous rooms, as well as two rooms with massive fans to work with the filters to seal off the bunker from radioactive fallout. The basement was mostly filled with papers and binders and had rooms for storing equipment, christmas decorations, a generator room, and scores of equipment to run the facility and maintain in various rooms.

All kinds of old equipment was left behind like vintage oscilloscopes. While i’m sure most of it is ruined by mold and rot it was still cool to see. There was papers everywhere including documents marked confidential explaining the purpose of the facility, and how to activate its fallout defense mechanisms, it had massive diesel generators, and a massive air filtration system, despite my best efforts I couldn’t fallout proof the bunker because it had fallen into disrepair and decay but it was still remarkably intact and untouched by looters, the link below has the pictures I took inside the facility, altogether this was the coolest place i’ve ever explored.

I took many more pictures this is just a limited selection of some of the highlights, there was much more to the facility then the photos suggest

Heres a bonus view from the top of the tower, this was taken at a different facility that was welded shut but its the same type of tower, I climbed the tower of the facility featured in this post but i’m not trying to spoil the location https://imgur.com/a/p8B8r81

As a ham radio operator and radio nerd this is awesome!!!

Looks like it was likely one of the AT&T Long Lines sites, lots of 'em floating around - some sold to new owners, some converted for ham radio use and clearly some left abandoned.

Yep thats exactly what it was! I came across some maps of the long lines network and my goal is to visit every one in Georgia. This place had all kinds of technical documents explaining how the site worked and its role within the larger network which was really cool to learn about.

This is one of the coolest spots I've seen! I would love to explore that; there's so much history inside there.

I loved seeing the pictures from the old papers in there, it really is a blast from the past. I'm glad you were able to get in and document some of that history before the water moisture got to it. That is some solid urbexing!

We didn’t even scratch the surface of the tip of the iceberg, we spent over an hour just reading documents trying to figure out how various things in the bunker worked, there were countless other documents about the long lines network as a whole as well as everything under the sun related to AT&T

Heres a small sample of some of the documents, we tried to find the nuclear explosion detection device it mentioned but it was either removed or we simply didn’t know what or where to look for

That looks like a fun explore! For what it's worth, those photos/videos from outside definitely give away where the other tower is located. I'd suggest editing those out since the thread is public.

Thanks for the headsup, I removed them, didn’t realize it was that much of a giveaway since are dozens of those specific towers.

Hey that's an awesome location and beautiful shots! The old AT&T long lines sites have been on my list of things to do for a while now. Good job there and I can't wait to see some more, thanks.

That was a fun exploration with you. It was quite a fascinating place to explore. Felt almost like walking through a museum.
