Kashim Club

-A A +A
1941–1942

One complete anomaly on the base is the Kashim Club, built as an enlisted men's club (and named after the traditional Eskimo ceremonial dwelling). Probably to emphasize the informality of the club, the building is constructed of logs, sawn flat on three sides. A stone chimney on an end wall adds to the rustic nature.
