A family has a house inside the area 51 area, that's right, they have a freaking house INSIDE THRE FREAKING AREA 51. So here's the deal


For decades the public has tried to find out what's buried at Area 51, the military facility that housed America's top Cold War secrets.

For Joe Sheahan, it's his father -- buried on a plot of land three miles from where the U-2 spy plane was perfected, according to CIA documents declassified in 2013.

This week, Sheahan visited his father's grave site for what he thinks will be the last time, now that the U.S. Air Force wants to buy the land and has vowed to use eminent domain to get it. The Sheahan family, which has owned the land in southern Nevada since the 1880s, doesn't like the government's price: $5.2 million for 400 acres of land and mining rights.


5.2 million????? I would accept that in without question, because my country current coin value is 4x less than the USA dolar. Here's some of the family pictures and location of their house






A September 10 deadline to accept the offer has passed with no agreement, and Joe Sheahan is digging in for a legal fight.

"If I come out with nothing, so be it," he told CNN. "I'm not going to lay down and say it's OK."

The Air Force wants the land because, after decades of escorting family members into the highly restricted space, it can no longer ensure the family's safety during the "near-24/7 operation" at the base, officially known as "The Nevada Test and Training Range."

"We've tried to do everything we can, include canceling missions when they come out," said Col. Thomas Dempsey, commander of the facility. "And that's a tremendous expense to taxpayers."

That's ironic, say the Sheahans, who claim the most danger they've faced was from the military itself, intimidating the family since the Air Force began taking over land here in the 1940s -- today it controls 2.9 million acres.


According to the family, they are allowed to enter their property once a month and have to tell the military before, otherwise they will be shoot. According to the family, it's been decades since the military want to trow them off, and everytime they spend in the property they would always have their lifes treaten by men with guns. They also said that once; a 7 year-old girl traveled in vacation to the house and she came back traumatized.

The Sheahan family also said the military bombarded and shoot on their property before, trying to force them to leave. There's also pictures but i'm to lazy to get them now.

The reason for all this? According to them, Area 51 is used to test top-secret airplanes and the military don't want to ensure their safety anymore.

What do you think about this?

I think that you have to factor in the value of the mine - which I remember from an earlier thread is the main factor - and the factor that is f'-the-government-for-forcing-us away-from-our-land.

On the other hand, as an american you would have to acknowledge the value of your military's ability to R'n'D in secrecy .
