Significance: Building 18, built in 1944, is an open warehouse for the storage of hospital supplies. The building is located adjacent to a former rail line and also has loading docks for truck access. It is representative of the type of low-cost, mass-produced industrial buildings that have continued to grow in popularity since World War II. The presence of Building 18 demonstrates how active the Allen Park Veterans Administration Hospital became during the World War II era and the need at that time for additional storage facilities to support the increase in hospital patients and services.
