Park Service Seeks Permits to Demolish Air Force Station Buildings

wrecking ball01TRURO – Up to 12 buildings at the former North Truro Air Force Station may come down later this year.

The Cape Cod National Seashore bought the property 20 years ago, and now Highlands Center Project Manager Lauren McKean says action is being taken on turning it into an arts and science center.

“It’s been a number of years since we got significant chunks of money to do some changes to the site,” McKean said. “What we’d like to do is promote the place as a new emerging home for arts and sciences,” she said.

McKean said the Park Service intends to put out a contract for installing solar panels on at least two structures.

The site is what McKean referred to as a “Cold War history site,” home to the Northeast Radar Movement.

It closed in 1985, and the lot was purchased in the mid-1990s by the Park Service.
