AAA Editor Notes
U.S. Bullion Depository, on Gold Vault Rd., holds a large portion of the U.S. gold reserve. The 100-square-foot, 1937 treasure house is bombproof; its walls and roof are faced with huge granite blocks. At different times the vault has also held the British Crown Jewels, the Magna Carta, the Constitution of the United States and the Declaration of Independence. The depository is closed to the public.
