Lionville was an important microwave junction with L-carrier (coaxial-cable) facilities. It is reported to have been AT&T's largest radio site east of the Missisippi. The building, approximately 70,000 square feet, was hardened against nuclear blasts and included a dual-filtered ventilation system, a decontamination chamber, and other protective features. Lionville's steel lattice tower stands 215 feet tall.
