Summary

Significance: The Ambulant Quarters is one of the original structures erected by the United States Veterans' Bureau at Aspinwall in 1924. The building originally housed ambulatory tuberculosis patients, who were kept separated from the ward patients in the Infirmary Building (Building No. !). The Ambulant Quarters is significant for its associations with the Veterans' Bureau's national efforts to expand its medical facilities during the 1920s and is representative of the earliest period of construction at the Aspinwall site. Later as the hospital's need and requirements changed, the Ambulant Quarters were adapted and it continued service as a research facility.
