The largest wooden structures in the world
Commissioned in 1942 to accommodate the U.S. Navy's "Lighter Than Air" coastal patrol operations during WWII, these hangars were the largest wooden structures in the world at the time. Each of these 17 story tall hangars could house 6 blimps and many helicopters.
The future of these structures is uncertain as they no longer have and practical use and take up lots of land. The military base that once operated here has now become mostly housing although some of the buildings still remain for now.
