After living in a leaky shed for 10 years, the Marines received money to build proper barracks. Marines constructed most of the building themselves, finishing it in 1811. Over the next 150 years, the barracks they lived in and the sites they protected changed. Still, the Marines and the commandants they served called the Navy Yard home.
