CONGRESS' UNDERGROUND BUNKER TOURS SET.

Byline: Daily News

An Eisenhower-era underground bunker, designed to house members of Congress and their staffs during nuclear attack, will soon be open to tours by guests of the Greenbrier resort in White Sulphur Springs, W.Va.

Last July, the federal government relinquished control of the 112,544-square-foot bunker, which is 700 to 800 feet below the West Virginia Wing of the resort, which is about 250 miles southwest of Washington. Areas on the tour include the cafeteria, dormitories, decontamination chambers, a clinic and operating room, and chambers for the House and Senate.

The 90-minute tour costs $25 for adults, $10 for children age 12 to 18. Children under 12 aren't permitted on the tour. Information: (800) 624-6070.
