description

Summary

Significance: This building, designed to complement the Georgian Revival architecture of the bases initial permanent construction in the Cantonment district, assumed a critical role in servicing the base's flight mission in parachute preparation, a function it maintained until recently in servicing drag chutes for jet aircraft. It is one of the few buildings of its type erected in Michigan and is an excellent example of 1930s era military technology.
