Summary

Significance: The three senior officers' houses at Mountain Home Air Force Base were constructed as part of the 270-unit Armed Services Housing Project, a collaboration between the architectural firms of Richard J. Neutra & Robert E. Alexander of Los Angeles and Hummel, Hummel & Jones of Boise, Idaho. Prominent architect Richard Neutra designed the three officers' housing units in 1958 and construction was completed in 1959. The housing reflects elements of the International Style, of which Neutra is considered a master, and is the only example of his work in Idaho.
