It Looks Like A Typical Las Vegas Home, Until You See What It's Hiding Underground
October 30, 2014
From the outside, it looks like a typical Las Vegas home with a lot of property.
But what's with all the air conditioning units on the ground?
And this turbine ventilation in the middle of the yard?
That's because this home is hiding a huge secret: A self sustaining underground lair in case of, say... a nuclear war.
This underground lair was built in 1978 by Girard B. Henderson, a very wealthy man concerned about the Cold War. And if Henderson was going to wait out the end of the world underground, he was going to do it in style.
To get there, you must take an elevator.
There are three bedrooms, including a guest house.
What good would a doomsday home be without a bar?
There's a lighting system that reflects the time of day.
A pool and sauna.
Even a putting green.
The murals took three years to paint. Each reflects where the owner lived, including Colorado and Los Angeles.
The home has been purchased a couple times since he first put it on the market, but it's currently owned by a bank after a foreclosure.
I guess no one is preparing for the end of the world these days...
