Summary

Significance: Building 909 is significant as a contributor to the AFSWP "Q" Area, also referred to as "Fairfield Air Force Station (AFS)," the "Air Materiel Command (AMC) West River Depot," and the "3083rd Air Defense Command/Air Defense Group (ADC/ADG)." It is interpreted as a rare and distinguishable entry, three components of which are distinctive: the "A" structure, the "C" structure, and the interconnected weapons assembly structures. This district was designed as four concentrations of buildings and structures within high-security fencing: administrative buildings, communications-intelligence center, power plant, and base spares warehousing.
Survey number: HABS CA-2669-F
