Significance: In response to massive World War II mobilization, Building 73 and nine similar duplex units of the Noncommissioned Officer Housing (NCO) were built in 1940 on Chanute AFB. The Georgian Revival-designed housing was built from Office of Quartermaster General (OQMG) standardized plans. This housing is a contributing element of the Chanute AFB Historic District.
