Barracks

In 2010, the city of Adair Village took possession of two of the few remaining structures from the World War II-era Camp Adair cantonment. The city arranged to move the buildings; placed them on foundations; installed infrastructure; and put on new siding, new windows and new roofs. These buildings, which you can see near Highway 99W, now need to have the balance of their restoration done
