Notes
Survey number HABS VA-1210-I
Building/structure dates: 1908 initial construction
Significance: This building was erected after the completion of a facility master plan by John Calvin Stevens in 1906. Stevens received both the contract for the completion of the master plan and the subsequent contract to design buildings at the facility in an open patch of land that served as a garden at the northwest end of the facility. Increased need for residential facilities and dining facilities prompted this building's construction for the growing member population during the early 20th century. Constructed in 1908, it served as a barracks for members through 1997.
