Building/structure dates: 1952 initial construction
Significance: With the acceleration of Cold War tensions and the outbreak of the Korean War, the growing complexities of aircraft technology and flight brought about the construction of modern support facilities which included the Oil Pump Station Building (Building No. 88470). This small pump house had large underground fuel tanks that stored the jet fuel needed to operate aircraft.
