Does anyone know where any old ww2 bomb shelters are? I heard the old kc has one under it. Is this true? Anywhere else that has them?

The old Knox Central has a "fallout shelter". It is a product of the Cold War not WW II. The building was built after the World War but during the Cold War. I'm not aware of any WW II shelters around here.

Under the building. There is or was (probably still there) an entrance near the front corner of the classroom building on the left side as you look at it from North Main. Entrance faces the side street. I'm about 99% sure there was no access from the inside of the building. I don't know how big it is or if it covers entire footprint of original part of building. Lots of stray cats used to come from under the building on the backside where there were some small openings. This may not have been part of the shelter though.

I think the old Knox Central is a creepy building.

The shelter is under K.C. Been in it before. It only has one access point now. It is pretty much as it was during the Cold War I guess. They have some of it filled with storage stuff. They still have rations, gas masks, blankets and other stuff like that. It's dark and damp with a musky smell and an odd feeling.
