Fort Rodman Military Reservation, Post Exchange, Along western edge of Fort Rodman, just east of army property, New Bedford, Bristol County, MA
Significance: The Post Exchange retains its integrity of location, design, setting, materials, and workmanship. It was built specifically for troops during World War II, a major event in this country's history. It is a very intact example of a World War II "temporary" building constructed according to a standardized plan and may be one of the few surviving examples of its type. In addition, because the Post Exchange was part of a coastal installation during the final period of coastal fortification, it contributes to the existing Fort Taber National Register District, which is significant because it is "representative of the development of American coastal fortifications from the Revolutionary period through the mid-twentieth century."
