Significance: A contributing part of an eligible Fort Bragg historic district for the National Register of Historic Places. Built right after WWII but utilizing WWII building plans for temporary buildings, the Guest House Building served the wives and families of the 555th Parachute Infantry Battalion. The Army was still segregated at this time, and the 555th or "Triple Nickles" was the African American contingent ... The Guest House building had a communal open area in the center portion and a series of private rooms for wives and families to temporarily reside off of the open area.
