Notes
Survey number HABS MI-427-A
Building/structure dates: 1937 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1996 subsequent work
Significance: Building 1 is the main hospital building at the Allen Park Veterans Administration Hospital and clearly dominates the hospital complex through its height, width, scale, and number of additions. Building 1 historically housed most of the essential hospital services, including administrative, medical, and patient rooms. It is an excellent example of the Georgian Revival style used in VA hospital design nationwide in its symmetry, colonnaded portico, regular fenestration with multi-pane sash windows, brick and limestone edifices, and decorative details. The building has gone through several sizable expansions and innumerable interior alteration campaigns. These changes reflect shifts in medical technology, patient treatment practices, and the growth and decline of patient care and research activities at the Allen Park Veterans Administration Hospital. The building is significant for its physical representation of the importance of health care for American veterans.
