description

Summary

See HABS No. SD-24-S, East Campus Residential, for photographs. See overview historical context HABS No. SD-24 for additional information on the Battle Mountain Sanitarium and the National Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers.
Significance: The Duplex Quarters was built in 1920 to house two Assistant Surgeons and their families. It was built using standard Veterans Bureau plans for staff housing that were modeled on popular Colonial Revival suburban house types. The same plan was used next door for Building No. 28 (built 1927). These new duplex quarters were placed along the residential loop road near the original officer's quarters for the Battle Mountain Sanitarium. They represent the expansion of medical services for veterans in the 1920s.
