Significance: The Quartermaster Storehouse is a remarkably intact example of army storehouse construction from the first decade of the twentieth century. Built as a storehouse for the Signal Corps at Camp Reynolds, this structure was soon shifted to use by the post Quartermaster. The form and materials of this building are typical of warehouses at the turn of twentieth century. Although essentially an utilitarian structure, the storehouse was designed with regular proportions and careful exterior detailing, probably because of its prominent location at the base of the parade grounds.
