The Greenbrier is a resort in White Sulphur Springs, W. Va., with a massive underground bunker beneath the property. The 112,544-square-foot bunker was commissioned in 1958 to house Congress in the event of nuclear holocaust. It once featured decontamination chambers, a power plant, water storage tanks, a clinic with operating rooms, an intensive care unit, a pharmacy and dormitories that could accommodate more than 1,100 people. The facility’s location remained a secret for more than 30 years until The Washington Post exposed it in a 1992 article. At that time, the government ended its lease agreement with the resort, and The Greenbrier began offering bunker tours.
