Summary

Significance: Built in 1939-1941, in response to pre-World War II massive mobilization, Building 4 was originally designed as a 75-bed hospital with a 40-man Medical Detachment. Before construction was complete, the building plans were altered to accommodate 110 beds and build additional space for another 500 beds. The building is a significant element of the Chanute AFB Historic District.
