2410 Barracks

Then & Now

 

Barracks 2410 was chosen for its location and condition as the first to be restored in the barracks complex. With funding support in honor of Barry Formo, the Chief Tooele County Inspector and restoration supporter, work began. The original windows were repaired and painted, the siding was replaced where needed and other portions were restored. The underlayment of the fiberboard was replaced in many areas with stronger plywood, bolts and fasteners for the trusses were tightened or replaced and the roofing was replaced. Interior work on small items like the clothing shelves and hangers was completed and then the building was painted. Currently the interior is fitted with both single and double bunks, footlockers and other accessories.

Restoration Details

Each barracks is 1,600 sq. ft. built on wooden posts resting on the ground with no foundation. With prefabricated sections, a barracks could be erected in just a day or two.

Barracks were heated with three small coal heaters and there was no insulation or air conditioning.

A barracks slept 24 to 40 airmen depending on the bunking setup
