Description 

The Truck Storage Garage, Building No. 304 (currently Building No. 406), is a contributing building to the Vancouver National Historic Reserve District in Vancouver, Washington. The military reserve is significant for its role in the defense of the Pacific Northwest and its place in the administrative history of the United States Army (U.S. Army). The truck storage garage is a good example of a utilitarian building type erected in the 1930s during the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) tenure at Vancouver Barracks... -- Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS WA-267)
