We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the series National Register of Historic Places and National Historic Landmarks Program Records in the Records of the National Park Service (Record Group 79) that contains the file Washington SP Fort Ward Historic District, the file Washington SP Fort Ward Historic District (Boundary Increase) and the file Washington NHL Puget Sound Naval Shipyard that all include information about the missile site in Kitsap County. These records have been digitized and may be viewed online via the Catalog.
We also located the series Miscellaneous Activities of the U.S. Army, 1940-1966 in the Records of the Army Staff (Record Group 319) that includes photographs of Nike sites throughout the U.S. These records have not been digitized. Please contact the National Archives at College Park - Still Pictures (RDSS) at email@example.com for assistance with these records.
Next, we located 5 series of records from the 1950s-1960s created by the U.S. Army Materiel Command's Nike-X Project Office in the Records of the Army Staff (Record Group 319) that may contain some relevant information. The series General Correspondence, 1947-1954 in Record Group 319) also includes information about the Nike missile project.

These records have not been digitized. Please contact the National Archives at Chicago (RM-CH) at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance with these records.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDSS, RDT2, RW-SE, and RM-CH. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
Finally, as Mr. Schneider has noted, you may wish to contact the city government of Bainbridge Island, WA for further assistance. We suggest that you contact organizations like the Bainbridge Island Historical Museum, the Kitsap County Historical Society & Museum, and the Washington State Historical Society to see if they can provide any additional insight.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
