Significance: Original design by A.J. Davis, 1848 and sub., burned during Civil War (1864), and rebuilt under direction of Davis (1870-73); of the subsequent additions to the original, one was (1892) by I.E.A. Rose and another (1918-19) by B.G. Goodhue, both relying heavily on earlier Davis drawings. Latest addition, referred to as "New Barracks," was built 1946-1948. The structure was named a National Historic Landmark in 1966. Since its construction the Barracks has housed sleeping quarters, classrooms, and administrative offices for VMI. In recent years classrooms and offices have been moved to nearby buildings.
