description

Summary

Significance: This Depot Supply Warehouse and Supply Division Headquarters housed principal storage activities at Hill Field/Air Force Base during and after World War II. This building provides particularly vivid images of the processes involved in the mission of receiving, storing and supplying air materiel for the U.S. Army Air Corps in support of the Pacific and European theaters of military operations during World War II. In addition, it contributes to a deeper understanding of the early development of the U.S. Army Air Corps, a branch of the Army that eventually became the U.S. Air Force. Hill Field was one of only two air depots established in the United States during the tumultuous years immediately preceding World War II.
