Description: Technical report
This document presents a historic context, integrity analysis, structural analysis, and restoration cost estimate for the Mountain View Officers’ Club (Building 66050) at Fort Huachuca, Arizona. The report meets requirements in the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) for federal agencies to address their cultural resources—defined as any prehistoric or historic district, site, building, structure, or object. Especially relevant is Section 110 of the NHPA, requiring federal agencies to inventory and evaluate cultural resources. Identification of potentially significant properties is achieved only through a survey and evaluation to associate a property within a larger historic context. The club was dedicated on 6 September 1942 and was utilized for the recreation of black officers stationed at Fort Huachuca from 1942 until 1945. It is the determination of the current survey that while the Mountain View Officers’ Club is individually significant under Criterion A for the black military experience historic context and under Criteria A and C for the World War II temporary building historic context, it does not retain historic integrity under either criteria due to major modifications to both the setting and the building. Therefore, the Mountain View Officers’ Club is recommended not eligible for the National Register of Historic Places.
