Designed by Eero Saarinen, and built over a period of 6 years, the TWA Flight Center opened in 1962 and funneled public traffic for almost 40 years. However, with the demise of Trans World Airlines (TWA), the terminal shut down in 2001 and has been vacant since.

If you're ever in Virginia Beach, drop by a mid-50's looking Strip Mall. The "saw tooth" design for its canopy was definitely a sign of its times.

This Delaware sight that looks like a Moon House appears to have just landed to take earthling specimens up into the sky for testing purposes. Not quite the cylinder from War of the Worlds, but rather interesting nonetheless.
