Hamilton Field, Service Club, Sixth Street between Escolta & Hangar Avenues, Novato, Marin County, CA
Significance: In 1942, this Service Club was completed in response to the needs of the growing base for a facility where the enlisted men could host visiting relatives and conduct social activities. Building 438 is considered significant for its association with Air Force history in northern California, and with World War II actions in the Pacific Theater. The architectural detailing evident in the entryway and landscaping efforts were unusual during the war years and attest to the importance of this social club to the enlisted population on base.
