Notes
Survey number HABS CA-1841-G
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (N904).
Building/structure dates: 1904 initial construction
Significance: The Camp Reynolds hospital (1904-05) is a largely unaltered example of Army hospital construction from the first decade of the twentieth century. It was built using standard plans created by the Surgeon General's Office and used for five hospitals in the San Francisco Bay Area. This plan updates the basic pavilion and ward annex form of an 1867 hospital plan distributed by the Surgeon General's Office, an early example of standardized Army design. A larger and more modern concrete hospital was constructed at the East Garrison beginning in 1911, contributing to the swift obsolescence and accidental preservation of many original features at the Camp Reynolds hospital. From 1923 until 1946 the hospital building was used as barracks for enlisted men and offices.
