Gibsonville, NC

Location: Rt. 61, Gibsonville, NC

Gibsonville was a power-feed station on the Moseley, VA to Stanfield, NC segment of the east-coast L4 coaxial-cable route.

The site's original structure is an underground building, hardened to resist the effects of a nuclear blast, and accessed through a small building on the surface. The entrance building contains a stairway and a shaft with an electric hoist for moving equipment and materials.

Gibsonville remains an active AT&T facility, with the coaxial cable replaced by fiber optics. At the time of that transition, an additional entrance was constructed on the east wall of the underground building. It is accessed through the large keystone-shaped structure, which has a separate driveway entrance from the state highway.
