Significance: The Turtle Mountain Ordnance Plant is significant as the only large-scale, diversified manufacturing facility for the production of jewel bearings in the United States. Jewel bearings were considered a product critical to American military needs during the early and middle years of the Cold War, and the Turtle Mountain plant was established through a federal-private partnership specifically to address this defense concern. Thus, the plant is also a significant reflection of American logistical responses to perceived Cold War security threats.
