Notes
Survey number HABS CA-2637
National Register Number: 66000232
Significance: These four vehicle sheds were built in 1940, and designed according to the Army's 700-series standard plans. They represent the mobilization of the Army for World War II, an Army that had not completed the transition from horse-drawn to motorized vehicles, and are early examples of shelters built for such vehicles by the Army. Each building is open on the two long sides, and the skeletal nature of the structure is open to view from without as well as within. These four vehicle sheds are contributing structures to the Presidio of San Francisco's National Historic Landmark district.
