Significance: With the companion Administration Building on the opposite side of the Chapel, the Superintendent's Quarters forms an important part of Ernest Flagg's Beaux-Arts scheme for the United States Naval Academy. With the other two buildings (Chapel and Administration Building), it closes the western edge of the formally organized quadrangle. Unlike the other Flagg Buildings, the Superintendent's Quarters is domestic, rather than monumental, in scale, and provides a distinct contrast to the buildings in its immediate vicinity.
