Significance: The Ward Memorial Building (Building 29) was constructed as the original cultural, administrative and recreational center of the Western Branch of the National Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers. It provides a significant record of the history of the National Home and the breadth of its commitment to the welfare of veterans. In addition, it is significant for the quality of its design, its distinctive Queen Anne architecture is second only to the Chapel (Building 66) on the campus.
