Notes
Survey number HABS MI-427-M
Building/structure dates: 1945 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 2002 subsequent work
Significance: Building 23, originally the Occupational Therapy Shops, was constructed in 1945. It was converted at an unknown date to locker facilities for hospital staff. The abundance of lockers in this building shows the large number of hospital nurses, doctors, administrative personnel, therapists, researchers, attendants, and other staff employed by the VA to operate the Allen Park hospital. While more industrial in appearance with its large windows and flat roof, the building generally continues the use of Georgian Revival details found throughout the campus. It has a brick facade with a limestone veneer base, regularly spaced sash windows, quoins, and cornice.
