Notes
Survey number HAER CA-233-A
Building/structure dates: 1900 initial construction
Significance: Quarters 1 is listed in the National Register of Historic Places under Criteria A and C, in the areas of military history and architecture. The period of significance ranges from 1898 to 1916. Quarters 1 was built in 1900 as the Commander's Residence for the United States Naval Training Station, the only training station on the west coast at the time. It is an unusual example of a U.S. Naval residence in the Classical Revival style, which had become fashionable for private residences in the San Francisco Bay Area in the 1890's, but was not typical of Naval base housing, most of which was built in later periods. The six adjacent Classical Revival Quarters are registered contributors to the designated eligible Senior Officers' Quarters National Register District. They represent all of the major unmodified buildings on the island dating to its use as a Naval Training Station.
