Stony Brook Air Force Station is a former Air Force Station that operated from the 1950s until 1972. It is located in Ludlow, Massachusetts, adjacent to Westover Joint Air Reserve Base. Between 1954 and 1962 Stony Brook AFS was an Operational Storage Site for Air Materiel Command (AMC-OSS), one of five in the United States, and the nuclear weapons storage and maintenance facility for Westover Air Force Base alert aircraft. In July 1962 it was transferred to the operational control of the Strategic Air Command (SAC).
Today, the site is the home of the Massachusetts Municipal Wholesale Electric Company (MMWEC), Hampden County Jail and other local businesses.
