Site: PIN-A


Like all the Intermediate sites (I-Sites), PIN-A was shut down and abandoned in 1963. Unfortunately, beyond the construction era photos at the bottom of this page, there are no pictures of PIN-A during its operational period of 1957-63.

The photos below are of the North Warning System (NWS) station that was establish near the original site in the late 90’s.

Construction Era Photos for PIN-A.
The pictures below were selected from the extensive collection of Markham Cheever, the DEWLine’s Superintendent of Construction from 1953 to 1957, before the Line went operational. (Click on picture to enlarge.)

The People.
The people in the photos below, also from the Markham Cheever collection, are displayed in the hopes that someone may recognize a father, grandfather, or friend who was involved in the construction of this particular DEWLine site.
