Operation of CP-1 was terminated in February 1943 and the nuclear reactor dismantled and moved to the laboratory's Palos Park site A. It was reconstructed using CP-1 materials but enlarged with a radiation shield and named CP-2. It began operation in March 1943. More....

Note: the stadium was torn down in 1957.
