Quarters K


Quarters K was built in 1937 as Charleston Naval Base housing for officer families. The design of the living quarters mimics that of homes built near the Panama Canal during the early 20th Century. The layout of the interior included 3 upstairs bedrooms and 2 baths, and a distinctive “T” shape living area through the center of the home with large windows completely throughout the entire house.
