Former NIKE PR-79 Control Area

The former US Army NIKE PR-79 Control Area (Site) is an approximately 8-acre parcel of land located near the top of Oak Hill off of Route 101 at the end of Theodore Foster Drive in Foster, Rhode Island. The coordinates for this Site are on the U.S.G.S. 7.5 minute Quadrangle for Clayville, RI and are approximately 41° 50’ 31” North by 71° 42’ 57” West.  The property is recorded in the Town of Foster Assessor’s Office as Lot 10 on Plate 18.
   
The Site formerly consisted of six buildings, three radars and support facilities enclosed by a 6-foot high chain link fence around the entire property.  The three main buildings were the former Administrative Building, the former Barracks, and the former Mess Hall.  At present, only the former Mess Hall building exists and is used by the Town of Foster for the Foster-Glocester Regional School District Special Education Department administration office. The other former buildings on-Site were the former Radar Control Building, a former Engine Generator Building, and a former Pump House.  There are several paved areas for parking lots and roadways. There is also a former sewage treatment area located to the West of the Site at the base of Oak Hill related to the former NIKE PR-79 Control Area.
