NIKE Missile Base C-84, Administration Building, North of Launch Area Entrance Drive, Barrington, Cook County, IL



Significance: This building provided administration facilities for the base. Engineering drawings indicate that most Nike administration buildings contained a day room, offices for the battery commander, battery officers, and the 1st Sergeant, a supply room, supply office, hobby room, communications room, barber shop, mail room, restroom, and a room for arms storage. The building was built in 1956 from standardized drawings approved by the Corps of Engineers, most of which were designed by the firm of Leon Chatelian, Jr., of Washington, D.C. Nike buildings were considered modified emergency buildings. Originally, they were to be pre-fabricated structures, but were rather unsightly and did not contribute to troop morale and, therefore, were changed to modified emergency design.
Survey number: HAER IL-116-B
