It's a fucking awesome artillery factory that used to make depleted-uranium shells for the A-10 Warthog airplane gattling guns. What more do you need to know? The place is EPIC. For real.

    Chamberlain Manufacturing Co. once made washing machine wringers, aluminum awnings, refrigerator shelves and sprayers. It later switched to munitions, producing tank ammunition, warheads and components used for the Patriot missile during the 1991 Persian Gulf War.

    Chamberlain closed in 1994. The city took ownership in December 2005 and began working on a cleanup plan for the site.
