National Register Number: 69000057
Significance: During and immediately after World War I, the Ordnance Department erected a number of buildings on Rodman Avenue, just west of the nineteenth-century, Greek Revival stone shops. To maintain the "grand boulevard" appearance of Rodman Avenue, these buildings were designed in a classical revival style. Completed in 1921, the Recuperator Building was part of this construction program. It is a significant example of military industrial design that expanded the arsenal's manufacturing program while preserving its overall architectural integrity. The Recuperator Building is part of the Rock Island Arsenal National Register Historic District.
