This site is where shooting was judged. In line, across the width of the range were 3 or 4 cement pads that held targets. Neighbors remember when they shot machine guns there. There was also some sort of rotating beacon that folks remember seeing on the ridge above. There was a radio tower at building 139 there too. Some say that these items are the only reason the whole hill was not flattened.
