Great Lakes History Trail Stop 3

Unlike many military complexes where troops occupied the site before construction, the Great Lakes project was designed and built before training operations began. The architect, Jarvis Hunt of Chicago, varied the design of individual buildings based on function and size. A common bond throughout the Italian Renaissance design was achieved by using terra cotta ornamentation, arches and vaults to unit the buildings into one common theme.
