I was wondering if it was possible to drive through the Sunflower Army Ammunition Plant in De Soto? All I've ever seen is the water tower.

According to the security guard who answered the phone at the site, no, you can't go driving around there.

Though the 9,065-acre plant site is closed and has many vacant buildings, it still has security guards who control access. The site also needs to undergo an environmental cleanup.

Johnson County commissioners are currently working with a private firm to try to get part of the site developed into a possible research park and a mix of residential and commercial businesses.
