Notes
Survey number HABS FL-500
Building/structure dates: 1940 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1986 subsequent work
Significance: Building No. 631 was constructed in 1940 and is one of eleven new hangars completed between 1937 and 1940 as part of a massive building campaign to support the expansion of Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola. Building No. 631's original function was the repair and overhaul of aircraft utilized at NAS Pensacola for all levels of aviation training. Consequently, the facility directly supported NAS Pensacola's primary mission as the nation's preeminent center of naval aviation history. With its red brick exterior walls, decorative quoins, and limestone detailing, the hangar is an excellent local example of an industrial building that incorporates architectural elements of the Georgian Revival style. Having sustained few alterations since its construction, the resource retains its historic character and integrity to a noteworthy degree. Building No. 631 is a contributing property within the National Register-eligible Chevalier Field Hangar Historic District and is one of many buildings at the station that sustained damage by Hurricane Ivan in September 2004.
