description

Summary

Significance: This warehouse provides particularly vivid images of the processes involved in the general supply and depot operations at Ogden Arsenal during World War II. In addition to storing and shipping items, Ogden Arsenal was a major post for reclamation of damaged but serviceable ordnance components and metal products. Building 1243 was designated as an ordnance repair shop and served a crucial role in these reclamation activities at Ogden Arsenal during World War II. This building, along with other structures at the base, renders a unique picture of the U.S. Army build-up which occurred on the eve of and during World War II.
