More About
Wendover, UT

About WendoverLocated on the Utah-Nevada border at the western edge of the Great Salt Lake Desert, Wendover was established in 1907 as a Western Pacific Railroad stop. In 1940 the Army established an air base just south of town. During World War II it became a major training center for bomber pilots, including the crews that dropped the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

From vicinity hillsides it is possible to see the curvature of the earth. Looking east across the vast, level expanse of the Great Salt Lake Desert, the straight lines of the interstate and parallel railroad tracks and utility lines appear to curve away to the horizon.
