Significance: The Airmen's Dormitory Building (Building No. 1115) was one of seventeen dormitories built in 1951 to house seventy-four men each. It represents Ellsworth's significant growth both in size and function during the Cold War era. Ellsworth, one of the Air Force's major bomber bases at that time, served as a repository of a large portion of the nation's nuclear weapons arsenal, and became home to a nuclear missile wing.
