Members of the Sheahan family said Monday they have rejected the Air Force’s $5.2 million offer to buy their land and mining claims near Groom Mine, next to the secret Area 51 installation where the U.S. military and CIA have tested spy planes and stealth aircraft for six decades.

Joe Sheahan, 54, of Henderson, said the family has decided to decline the final offer that the Air Force made public last week because “we want to keep our property”.
He said the Air Force has threatened to take control of their property through eminent domain on September 10 if the family doesn’t accept the offer.
