Strangely Unique Schools
Abo Elementary School
Abo Elementary School in Artesia, New Mexico, is located about forty miles south of Roswell and was part of a pilot program in the 1960s. The Office of Civil Defense wanted to see if schools could make good public shelters, and they paid a portion of the total cost of the school. Thats how we ended up with the first underground elementary school that doubled as an advanced Cold War fallout shelter.
