Constructed in 1941. Following the example of other Army bases, the Presidio’s World War II-era buildings were based on standard plans designed for quick and inexpensive construction. As evident in Main Post Building 40, the plans called for very simple rectangular wood-frame buildings with exterior stairs at each end, horizontal wood siding, and asphalt-shingled roofs. This design was applied to all building types indiscriminately; as a result the barracks, mess halls, administrative buildings, post exchanges, chapels, and various other service buildings had similar appearances.
