Notes
Survey number HABS OH-2470-O
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (N1100).
Building/structure dates: 1948 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1975 subsequent work
Significance: The construction of T Building is unique, underground – bomb shelter type reinforced concrete construction with a fifteen-foot thick roof, sixteen-foot thick walls, and built on an eight-foot thick slab – this uniqueness was not what was determined to be of significance. Rather, it is significant for its role in the purification of polonium-210 for use in nuclear weapons, a continuation of processes begun in Mansato’s Dayton, Ohio, Central Research Facilities. T Building held the top priority of the seventeen buildings being constructed at the Mound complex, requiring several months to work after completion of construction to be ready for operation. This work would entail equipping the rooms for the hazardous process of polonium-210 production.
