Significance: Constructed as the main fire and police station for the Redstone Ordnance Plant in 1942, the two-story wood shiplap-sided building is derived from a standard World War II Army building prototype, but varies from the prototype with such distinctive architectural features as a curved entry bay and a four-story hose drying tower. Its form, massing, and bay spacing make this building a standout from its World War II Redstone contemporaries.
Survey number: HABS AL-883-A
