I know of a couple in Wisconsin and several wireless sites and since the 70s, all COs that I know of had their windows bricked in, the names removed from the building and anything that made them look like a switch removed. These now nondescript building sit quietly covered from the streets, in many cases by mature trees, and see little activity in that people parking to enter the building park inside a fenced area, not on the street. I am thinking that may have had something to do with the violent student anti-draft riots in Madison in the late 60s when these buildings, along with banks and other major stores, came under attack and a new policy was implemented to both fortify them and make then as anonymous as possible.Just my thoughts but it seems there was a move to camouflage COs in Wisconsin going back decades, which may have worked to their advantage in today's threat to disrupt anything and everything for some reason.
