Notes
Survey number HABS MI-427-H
Building/structure dates: 1939 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 2002 subsequent work
Significance: Building 13, completed in 1939, initially served as the hospital's laundry facility. By 1949, the laundry needs for the hospital, which had expanded significantly in the period 1945-47 with the addition of the B and C wings, exceeded the capacity of Building 13. Building 11 was constructed as the new Laundry building and Building 13 became the Engineering Shops. The building exhibits characteristic Georgian Revival influences, typical of the Allen Park facility and of VA hospitals nationwide. The interior and exterior symmetry, side gable form, and sash windows are all reflections of the Georgian Revival style that was common for VA hospitals.
