Nike Site Summit was an active part of America's first line of military defense from 1959 to 1979, during the Cold War era.   Working under an agreement with Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson (JBER) to preserve this historic area, Friends of Nike Site Summit (FONSS) has completed work on six structures still extant from Cold War days and which were included in that agreement:  three sentry stations, the dog kennel, the Missile Maintenance Building, and the Launch Control Building.

Please join FONSS volunteers, board members and Site Summit veterans for dinner and a special evening bus tour of Nike Site Summit as we celebrate our progress on restoration of the structures of Nike Site Summit and look forward to the future. 

After dinner at the Arctic Valley Ski Lodge, tour participants will be transported in 28-passenger buses from there to the Lower and Upper areas of Site Summit (weather and conditions permitting).  This memorable evening tour will be hosted by FONSS volunteers who have worked on the stabilization and veterans who served at Nike Site Summit.
