Nekoma, ND (WDAY TV) -- The fate is unknown for a missile silo in Cavalier County.

The Stanley R. Mickelson Safeguard Complex was sold for 530 thousand dollars.

The county's Job Development Authority was planning for years to develop the 431 acre property.

It was hoping to turn it into a UAS research and business development park, with a Cold War History Interpretive Center. But, it did not win the bid.

The identify of the new owner is not yet released. The site housed 100 anti-ballistic missiles in the 70s.
