Visiting Officer’s Quarters (Billeting)


Single and unaccompanied married officers arriving for duty were provided billeting in the Visiting Officers Quarters/Bachelor Officers Quarters in building 126.

Two buildings were set aside for this purpose. The larger building could accommodate approximately 30 officers, and the smaller one about 15.

The buildings, which were demolished, were located in this area on property now owned by Horry-Georgetown Technical College.
