Notes
Survey number HABS CA-1543-N
National Register Number: 75002103
Significance: Building 206 was built in 1917 at the end of World War I as the Artificers School Building. The building evolved into a multipurpose structure. It was used as a recreational facility for the U.S. Navy, then a storehouse, an industrial laboratory and finally a training facility. The structure was designed by Captain C.A. Carlson, Civil Engineer, U.S. Navy, who was noted for his frame and flat slab construction techniques on multi-story buildings. His work was compared favorably to the work of Architect, Albert Kahn. The building is unique in the building techniques and materials used in its construction for a multi-story building. Building 206 is a contributing element of the Mare Island Historic District, having good historical integrity with approximately 80% of the original building remaining.
