Saint Anthony Off The Beaten Path: 1 reviews and 1 photos
In the early days of the Cold War, a radar station that was part of Pinetree Line, a short-lived system designed to quickly detect potential Soviet bomber attacks on North America, was built in Saint Anthony. According to Wikipedia, "the early 1950s radar technology quickly became outdated and the line was in full operation only for a short time," but the ruins of the station are still there today for everyone (who knows of this offbeat site) to visit.
Access is by a rough gravel road via American Drive on the east side of town. Drive for a couple of kilometres and you'll get to the highest point around. There are foundations of old buildings everywhere and, on a clear day, outstanding vistas all around.
