Notes
Survey number HABS NV-33-B
Building/structure dates: 1961 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1965 subsequent work
Building/structure dates: 1969 subsequent work
Significance: The Power Plant (Building 806) is significant due to its association with the 800 Complex. The Air Force-built buildings in the 800 Complex are significant for their role in the Semi-Automatic Ground Environment (Project SAGE) air defense system, and as exceptionally important examples of the architecture of the Cold War. The period of significance of the property extends from 1961, when construction started, through its abandonment by the Air Force in 1975. Built in 1962, the Power Plant served the Fallon Air Force Station, especially the fallout shielded Building 800. The Fuel Tanks (Building 820) are proposed to be demolished and the pipes from the Fuel Tanks to Building 806 will be cut at the pipe boxes. Interior to Building 806, the floor level tanks are proposed to be removed as will the lower level Day Tanks and Make-up Water Tank.
