  • Theater (School) (Julie Nicoletta)

The one-story structure shares the simple Colonial Revival elements of the headquarters building, expressed in brick rather than concrete. A small vented cupola rises above the center of the roof. Originally an elementary school, the structure stands in the center of the old housing area, surrounded by trees and a lawn. The Navy converted it into a theater in 1963; it is now used for meetings.
