U.S. Naval Reserve Training Center

U.S. Naval Reserve Training Center

This building at Shelby Park in East Nashville was added to the National Register of Historic Places about half a year ago in August 2011. It was built in 1948-49 and is significant in the way it was built to resemble a Navy ship while facing the Cumberland River. The Navy moved out in 2009 and put up the fence around it. For the thorough details, look here:

This building was designed by Nashville architect Edwin A. Keeble as a two story, steel clad modified Butler hut armory building with a Nautical Moderne central projection which closely resembles the prow of a ship, complete with a large yardarm (flagpole) extending from a curved deck above the second floor.
