Summary

Significance: Originally Building 29 was a component of the New York State Soldiers' and Sailors' Home. The entire facility has been under Federal control since 1929 and is currently a Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Affairs Medical Center. Building 29 served as the hospital for this facility from 1880-1938. During the period from 1938-1961, the building was utilized as a nurses quarters, Domiciliary, Print Shop and Art Therapy. In 1961, the entire building with the exception of the southern section was vacated as structurally unsafe for occupancy. The southern section was re-designated as Building 29A, and remained as quarters until 1988. In 1988, Building 29 A became a Chemical Dependency Unit, a component of Domiciliary Operations, which is the current status as of this writing.
