I believe that the only MX Peacekeeper missiles in service are located around Malstrom AFB, 50 in total and they are scheduled for de-commission.
I recall reading a thread in a different forum where 2 guys were out hunting in Montana, literally in the middle of nowhere when they saw an Air Force
pickup driving along a deserted forest road. It stopped a short ways down the trail at a chain link fence so the hunters went to take a closer look.
There beyond the fence was an entranceway leading underground and what was obviously a missile silo.
Kind of weird and cool at the same time to think that a small team of guys were a hundred feet under the ground in the middle of a forest, which
itself was in the middle of nowhere maintaining an ICBM.
