Above All State Park Old Radar Station © Gary Jordan
Built during the Cold War, this radar station has since been abandoned. Above All State Park is home to the former site of SAGE Semi Automatic Ground Environment Air Defense Network. This particular site was a gap-filler providing low altitude coverage out to a range of 65 miles. The Semi-Automatic Ground Environment SAGE was an automated control system for tracking and intercepting enemy bomber aircraft used by NORAD from the late 1950s into the 1980s. In later versions, the system could automatically direct aircraft to an interception by sending instructions directly to the aircrafts autopilot.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
July 4 Big disappointment by EK Images
I visited Gillette Castle to find flower beds & pots all gone to weeds. Viewing the plants in the solarium looked stressed & brown. The Castle was closed due to budget restraints, yet the air conditioning was running. The gift shop & food court were open, why? There were only 3 cars in the parking lot. The wall to the pond is falling into itself. It would be better to close the park, than make it an embarrassment. People do travel from all over to find this.
September 16 Go for the human, not natural history
Fascinating history as a Cold War military site, with a few pieces of decaying equipment. If you visit at just the right time of summer, you may see lots of salamanders.
