The newly restored Area 13 features historic block structures and a series of 21 WWII-era wooden barracks like this one. Faced with a need for modern meeting space, barracks, and MWR areas, the PAARNG began planning to tear down the district and build anew at a cost of several million dollars. The wooden barracks, which are still being used as living quarters, were upgraded to enhance living conditions and energy efficiency. Installing cleaner energy systems has reduced energy costs for the barracks by 40% to 50%.
