Significance: After taking command of Rock Island Arsenal in 1865, General Thomas Jefferson Rodman devised a master plan for construction of ten large manufacturing shops, five on each side of the island's major east-west thoroughfare. These core manufacturing structures were supplemented by a variety of administrative, residential, maintenance, storage, and utility buildings. ... Located just northeast of the central manufacturing buildings, the Barracks was erected under the Rodman plan in 1872-1873. Designed to accommodate the arsenal's garrison, it was converted into quarters for Italian prisoners-of-war. Since 1945, the building has provided classroom and office space for the U.S. Army Engineering Training Activity (AMETA). It is part of the Rock Island Arsenal National Register Historic District.
