A school teacher in Wabaunsee County, Kansas has made history lovers' dreams come true by transforming a Cold War-era missile silo into a luxury Airbnb location.
Matthew Fulkerson converted the missile silo - which housed a nuclear warhead 65 years ago - into an underground mansion for short-term rentals.
According to the Associated Press, the idea came into fruition when Fulkerson, 37, asked his neighbors, Ed and Dianna Pedon, if he could turn the converted missile base into an Airbnb. While the couple had owned and lived in their makeshift home since 1994, they were intrigued with the idea.
Dubbed the "Subterra Castle," the schoolteacher intends to have the rental become more than just a pit stop for visitors passing through town.
"I see it as becoming a destination," Fulkson said.

Fulkerson said the Subterra is the only Airbnb located in a converted missile silo, and offers a truly one-of-a-kind experience.
The rental site offers a spacious main-floor bedroom, and a full kitchen for guests to prepare their meals.
It also offers a small fireplace that is perfect to achieve the "nice, cozy feeling in the fall and winter months," Fulkerson told The Topeka Capital-Journal.
The Subterra has already received widespread attention from several media outlets, including CNN, Discovery Channel, and National Geographic.
If the Subterra proves to be more popular, Faulkerson said, "we are considering using both apartments upstairs and down, especially because some people really want the experience of sleeping underground."
Inexpensive compared to most hotels, you can book the Subterra for only $145 a night.
