—Fort Bliss Main Post Historic District —These warehouses were built for the Eighth Quartermaster Corps in 1921 as a supply depot for Army outposts and units away from Fort Bliss. Unrest related to the Mexican Revolution (1910-1921) led to the establishment of a string of border outposts. El Paso's strategic location on the border with Mexico at the hub of five railroads made Fort Bliss the natural center of logistics and supply for 25 Army outposts from Douglas, Arizona to the Texas Big Bend.
