Inscription.  
This building housed the main K-25 badge and pass facility for many years during the Cold War and Reindustrialization period. Over many decades, thousands and thousands of shoes, from wingtips to work-boots stopped at this spot to enter the high security roto-gate.

We have maintained the "footstops" below, as a reminder of the many thousands of scientists, workers and visitors that entered the plant and, more importantly, as a testament to their successful effort to keep the nation safe and secure.
 
Erected 2010 by Heritage Center.
