Looking south, there are several bunkers visible which were used to store the munitions used in training. Buildings to the right of the bunkers were used late in the wartime period for the development of the atomic bombs, Little Boy & Fat Man as well as practice bombs called 'Pumpkins'.

The tower to the west of the long buildings is not historic, but was constructed for the filming of 'Independence Day'.

Looking southeast is the 'Gun Butt' structure used to test aircraft machine guns.
