The Famous Fremont Rocket

 

Having a life-size rocket bearing the "official crest" of Fremont and ready to head to the heavens seems perfectly at home in the center of Fremont's business district.  This was a 1950 cold war rocket fuselage attached to an abandoned war surplus store.  It was purchased by the Fremont Business Association,  restored to some of its former glory,  and mounted to a building in 1994. A sign beneath the rocket tells the story of the rocket.
