Recreation Center, School
1943, 1987

The conference center originally functioned as an Air Training Command school with twentyfive classrooms. In 1954 the Air Force converted the building into a recreation center, and in 1987 into a conference center. This one-story, H-plan building originally had wood siding but has been heavily remodeled to fit in with the new Spanish Colonial Revival look of many of the base's buildings.
