Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (N108; N413).
Building/structure dates: 1927 initial construction
Significance: Area B began as Wright Field, an important center for a variety of early aircraft engineering and support systems research. Specialized research and support structures here were the site of many innovations in aircraft and equipment design. During the military build-up generated by World War II, the extent and scope of the research conducted by Army Air Corps engineers expanded considerably, as did the facilities at Wright Field. After the war, cutting edge aeronautical research continued at the field, now a part of Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, including efforts important to early space flight technology. Its long history of innovation in the field of aeronautical engineering and the intact condition of many of its significant structures make Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Area B an important monument to the development of modern flight.
