This report inventories and evaluates, in terms of recommended eligibility for the National Register of Historic Places, all of the buildings constructed at Fort Hood containing the Main Post, North Fort Hood, and West Fort Hood between the years of 1942 and 1963. The authors inventoried and evaluated 463 buildings and all relevant landscape areas on the installation constructed or created during these years to make recommendations for determinations of standard eligibility to the National Register of Historic Places. The currently existing Program Comments for Unaccompanied Personnel Housing, Ammunition Storage, and Capehart-Wherry Housing were taken into consideration when determining recommended eligibility for relevant properties. The most historically significant aspect of the Main Post at Fort Hood is the layout that physically expresses the installations mission of armored vehicle development and training. The survival of the layout to the present day has resulted in our designation of historic districts that contain the recommended eligible resources and form a basis for guiding future development while remaining in compliance with federal historic preservation legislation and associated implementing guidance documents.
