PEANUT ISLAND, Fla. — If you are looking for a little piece of history, John F. Kennedy's bunker also known as the Detachment Hotel is located on Peanut Island.

The bunker was made to protect the Kennedy's if a nuclear war would have broken out. The bunker offers a little piece of Florida history from a much different time in America.

Kennedy, flowers, an American flag, and a photo of a a mushroom cloud, are displayed inside a bunker on Peanut Island in Riviera Beach, Fla. The bunker where President Kennedy would have been whisked if World War III erupted while he vacationed in Florida may face a bigger threat than Soviet missiles ever posed: a battle between its operators and the Port of Palm Beach.

The bunker's address is 6500 Peanut Island Rd, Riviera Beach, FL 33404.
