Significance: A contributing structure in an eligible historic district. Not individually significant. (Designed and built to be a single family house.) / The buildings of the original U.S. Naval Hospital in San Diego, considered as a landscaped ensemble, form a regionally significant work of historical architecture. The group is noteworthy for its harmonious architectural styling, unified planning, and spectacular siting. The plan for the Hospital complex included single-family residences for the senior medical officers. Those officers' residences were distinct from the major buildings of the group. Quarters B is the most prominent of those residences. (A commanding officer's quarters, a Quarters A, was never built on the Hospital grounds.) This building's two-story vernacular domestic form and Spanish-style details are not individually significant. It is a contributing structure in the Hospital group.
