The West Virginia Wind atop Copeland's Hill was built in the early 1960's to provide more hotel rooms and a new location for the Greenbrier Clinic. The Clinic had opened in 1948 offering personalized diagnostic medical care in a resort setting. This construction project also created a cover story to disguise the installation of a secret underground Congressional bunker buried in the hillside in front of you. Project Greek Island was the code name for this "emergency relocation center," part of a Cold War plan to evacuate government leaders from Washington D.C. In case of imminent conflict Congress would have reassembled and continued to function here within a 112,000 square foot facility. The bunker included House and Senate chambers, dormitories, dining rooms, staff office space, power plant, medical clinic and sophisticated communications equipment. The bunker was decommissioned in 1995.
