An Incredible Underground Cold War Era Hideaway in Las Vegas

From the outside, this Las Vegas house looks just like any other typical house in the area. It’s a two-story home on a normal street.

The owner Girard “Jerry” B. Henderson built this house at 3970 Spencer St., Las Vegas, NV in 1978. The 1 acre (surface) property, may look nothing out of the ordinary but it’s hiding a pretty amazing secret.
