Google Earth Views of Estes
On TRF, K'Tesh gave a link to the Estes facility as seen from Google Earth - CLICK HERE There are a few different views at the bottom to explore.
In the lighter area at the upper left are the small engine making buildings. We were told there were lightning rods on each building. If lightning was in the area all engine manufacturing was automatically shut down.
The grove of trees at the center top was where the farmhouse was. The Estes family lived there for years. Later it housed the R&D department.
The "T" shaped building is administration, the main building you would see in the catalogs.
Back when Estes offered tours you would enter the front to the right side of the ESTES name. In the back right side was "Cape Estes" and the store.
