Apollo Boilerplate BP-1224

Apollo BP-1224 is located at the Harris County Youth Village in Webster, TX, about a 3-mile drive from Space Center Houston. Google Maps link.

If the steam fitters union ever built an Apollo boilerplate, it'd probably look like this one. The Field Guide speculates that this boilerplate was used to test for fire hazards after the Apollo 1 fire. Passing references to BP-1224 are made in the February 5, 1968 and April 16, 1968 entries in The Apollo Spacecraft - A Chronology (SP-4009).
