Notes
Survey number HABS MI-427-I
Building/structure dates: 1939 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 2002 subsequent work
Significance: Building 14 was constructed in 1939 as the Duplex Staff Quarters. Two high-ranking hospital administrators and/or physicians and their families lived in this duplex, which has identical floor plans for each of the two residential units. Like the other original buildings on the hospital complex, Building 14 exhibits characteristic Georgian Revival features. The symmetry, side gable form, pedimented entrances, and sash windows are all reflective of the Georgian Revival style that was common among VA hospitals nationwide. The presence of this building, as well as the Nurses' Quarters, Attendants' Quarters, and Director's Quarters (Buildings 7, 8, and 6, respectively) indicates the need for round-the-clock, on-site staff at the hospital as only three individual families were given on-site housing (in Buildings 6 and 14).
