Welcome to the F.E. Warren AFB Intercontinental Ballistic Missile and Heritage Museum web site. The museum is located at F.E. Warren AFB, just west of Cheyenne Wyoming. The Museum is in historic Building 31, which was the built as the second hospital in 1887. The two-fold mission of the museum is reflected in our exhibits. The exhibits tell the story of the complex development of the Air Force Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles and the very rich heritage of the base from 1867 to present day. The base is presently listed on the National Register as a Historic site with three historic districts, and over 200 structures individually listed on the register dating between 1885 and 1930. The oldest structures are the “Doll Houses,” built in 1885, and are called this due to having only 2,500 square feet, whereas the Duplex housing has about 5, 600 square feet and the single officer’s houses are over 6,000 square feet.
Today, F. E. Warren is remembered as a Cavalry Post, but this base has been home to many different units over the years. The first unit to arrive was the 30th Infantry. A month later, the 2nd Cavalry arrived. At the turn of the twentieth century the base housed the 76th Field Artillery. The Military Medical Units have a long heritage directly tied to this base.

Note2: Genealogy Researchers, there are no personnel or old unit records kept on this installation. You must contact the National Archives, in Washington D.C. Thank You
