FORT ORD BUILDINGS, COMPLETION REPORT PICTURES 1940-1942

Fort Ord was mainly a 700 Series Temporary Mobilization Building cantonment. In 1923 General Pershing directed the Construction Services to prepare drawings for prefab wooden structures, small, one-story portables that could be quickly erected and dismantled. In 1928 permission was given to update the World War cantonment drawings to Construction Services from G-4. In 1929, rough sketches were ready for inspection for the new 700 Series building drawings, G-4 approves but the General Staff prefers the prefab idea. In 1934, Colonel Hartman joins Planning Branch of Construction Division, Office of Assistant Secretary of War and finds the planning branch in disarray, with 700 Series drawings incomplete and begins to revise the 700 Series plans. In 1935 Colonel Hart becomes Chief of Construction Branch and secures funding to begin revision of the 700 Series plans.

In 1938 he hires his staff to complete the 700 Series drawing. In 1939 Colonel Hartman submits plans to the Quartermaster General for approval. General Arnold rejects construction plans for existing military posts. Following Germany’s invading Poland and the emergency for military housing Colonel Hartman checks the 700 Series plans and drawings and discovers a few drawings altered and the rest destroyed. Dismayed, he gathers a group of draftsman and immediately begins to redraw the plans at Fort Myers. June of 1940 700 Series drawings and plans are recreated, and 300 building types approved by the War Department. The basic barrack included central heating, plumbing inside the buildings rather than in a separate location, concrete foundations, termite shields, and aqua medias (roof between the first and second store that went around the buildings). Camps would go up in company blocks, consisting of two, 63-men barracks, mess hall and administration building. August of 1940 Quartermaster Corps begins construction. The original Fort Ord garrison was mainly a 700 Series Temporary Mobilization Building cantonment with a few of the revised 800 Series buildings added. This is just a very basic description of the development of the 700 Series plan.

U.S. ARTILLERY AND CAVALRY STABLES, FORT ORD, 1941
The old Fort Ord Artillery and Cavalry Stables on 4th Avenue held over 1,400 U.S. Army horses of the 76th Field Artillery (horse-drawn) and 107th Cavalry (horse-mechanized) in the early part of World War 2. In 1942 these units were mechanized and the days of the horses were over. Even know the life of the stables were short it does not detract the historical significance of the stables and that it marked the end the hundreds of years of the glorious end of the U.S. Army Horse Cavalry and Horse Field Artillery era. And it also marked the end of the years of the presence and tradition they played along with the 11th Cavalry in the Monterey area and the Presidio of Monterey. If you listen carefully and walk around the stables you can still hear the pounding of hoofs, the nay of horses, the rustling of men and equipment, the pounding of the blacksmith's hammer and the movement of horse drawn limbers, caissons, canons and horses in draft, horse drawn wagon clatter, the barking orders of the stable sergeants, the troopers performing stable duty and the sound of canon roar. This all happen here at the stables on 4th Avenue. But now all is quiet and time has a way of forgetting but there always will be a few that remember those “Glorious Days Here”. We salute those men who were here, there are not many left.

The SD-17 buildings were a standard C.Q.M. building designed for many types of configurations. The most common design was for motor sheds. The SD-17 buildings on 4th Avenue were specifically designed as “Horse Stables” and not motor sheds. The drawings were series 700-372.2 and also C.Q.M. Plans No. 6665-237. They were specially built with a unique door design to take in account for the horse stalls, saddle and tack room. They were later converted into many uses after the horses moved out of Fort Ord.

4th Avenue U.S. Artillery and Cavalry Stables Layout, Fort Ord, Ca., 1941 WW2

The Fort Ord Blacksmith Shops, 1941, WW2

May 2011: “A TRAGIC LOST OF HISTORY AT FORT ORD, CALIFORNIA” just after Memorial Day the last complete example of our country’s end of the U.S. Army Warhorse which were still being used at the beginning of World War II. The Series 700 temporary type buildings: artillery, cavalry stables along with their blacksmith shops are being demolished on the California State University at Monterey Bay Campus, California. Leaving only the Fort Ord Station Veterinary Horse Hospital the only buildings remaining to testify of the memory of the “Fort Ord Horse Soldiers” that were there from 1940 to 1942. This action ends a two year long battle for their recognition and preservation.

This physical history is now lost and cannot be replaced, it is gone forever. This happens when people fail to recognize the historical significance and development clouds the heart and mind.

Words cannot express what is in my heart at seeing and walking the grounds of where the Fort Ord Field Artillery and Cavalry stables once stood.

Note: In the future I will have more comments to make about the university’s role in this matter or should I say lack of role or interest.



This is one of the stables before being demolished by the California State University at Monterey Bay Campus, California in 2011.


Above this wonderful image was found in the 1941 Fort Ord Yearbook “Historical and Pictorial Review of the 17th Infantry, 7th Division” on page 9. The corrals of the 76th Field Artillery looking north behind the stables and blacksmith shops that are on the left side of this picture. In between each blacksmith shop is a canvas tent holding hay temporarily until the hay shed which can be seen at the north end (roof) is finished, according to Lee Stickler.

The Fort Ord Blacksmith shops with stable guard quarters (buildings T-1451 to T-1462) were completed in April 21, 1941


The above picture show what the blacksmith shops and other buildings that still remain on the eastside of the SD –17 stables on 4th Avenue today. We are fortunate to still be able to see these buildings before they will be torn down at sometime in the future. (Source: National Archives)


Note: The above picture shows the escort wagon No. 18 “Old Reliable” of the 76th Field Artillery Regiment on the side of one of the blacksmith shops at the stables on 4th Avenue. Also notice the corral and horses in the background. The escort wagon was drawn by four mules and had a long history with the army.


The SD-15 Hayshed (T-1463) for the horses in the stables was located at the north end of the stables and blacksmith shops. Between SD-17 stable (T- 1441) and Blacksmith shop (T-1462), which is now the green building on the left when looking south down the stables and blacksmith shops. It would have been located right on 8th Street. To the west of where the hayshed once stood still stands the 5-ton incinerator made of brick (T-1442).


The 5-ton incinerator, brick building T-1442 was part of the stable and blacksmith and station veterinary hospital complex.

A few of the CSUMB’s students attempted to save the incinerator as kind of a monument to the stables and blacksmith shops, but the university and its president was just not interested. (photo: M. Davis)

Note: I was up at my home in Alaska when the stables came down and it wasn't until Veteran's Day 2011 when I was putting on a military display at the Fort Ord Station Veterinary Hospital that I caught my first glimpse of where the stables and blacksmith shop once laid. What a shock it was to me, you could not tell that they were ever there.

Motor Repair Shop (Type SP-14), dimensions: 76 feet and one-one half inches x 240 feet, date completed November 7, 1941, building numbers T-1672 and T-1674. Note: I have decided to put this image in the horse related area because in my research these buildings were remembered by the troopers that I have interviewed and were right across the street from the stables and I believe the work on the limbers, caissons, and gun carriages was done here. Before these buildings were demolished by the California State University Monterey Bay (CSUMB) a lot of people drove by these buildings every day on their way to work never knowing the historical significance and these buildings and that Army horse soldiers were here.


Building T-3140, Clinic, Veterinary, Medical, Type C-5, Date of design May 5, 1937, Authorized to supplement the Surgical Clinic where the animals strength warranted its need. Includes an office, latrine, rooms for supplies and heater, dispensary, and dressing floor with 2 horse stocks and hitching rails.

Type C-5 Clinic is an army veterinary building uniquely built to service horses (refer to Table No. 46 on the main page). It came with a large open area in the rear of the building where two horse stocks and two hitching rails were installed to handle the care of a large amount of horses. In 1946 the stocks and hitching rails were cut off and removed, their remains can still be seen in the building today. In 1946 this building was used as the Station Veterinary Command Office for Fort Ord taking care of the food inspections and small animal clinic located in the C-6 building. Both buildings remained as such until the station moved to their new location at Parker Flat Road. General Elia tells me when the hospital was converted from a “horse” hospital to small animal clinic and food inspection faculties there were a large amount of horse related medical supplies that were buried next to the C-5 building.


Note: The C-5 is only one of six buildings that make up the Fort Ord Station Hospital. The other buildings are the colic buidling, wards A and B, the C-6 surgical building and the barracks. A complete station veterinary hospital use in the early 1940's.


The C-5 veterinary Clinic as it looks today almost un-changed as it was used in the 1940's to 1994 by the Army. This building and the complete Station Veterinary Hospital is intact as of Nov. 2011 and is need of your help to preserve it's buildings.

The above picture from left to right, Building T-3140, Veterinary Clinic, Type C-5, Colic Building; T-3141, Building T-3142 (Ward A), T-3132 (barrack in the background), T-3143 (Ward B) building and T-3144, C-6 Vet. Clinic Surgical Building which is covered by a tall white fence (Built originally as a barrier between the horses and dogs). General Elia tells me Wards A and B were not being used in 1946 to 1948 and they were being used for storage and vehicle storage. The stalls were still in place at this time. General Elia also tells me the barrack was used at this time for the housing of about 12 to 15 enlisted men stationed at the veterinary hospital. Between Ward A and B are 2 concrete pads with 2 wood post stocks believe to be a horse washing area which is still use today. There are also a wooden picket lines for each ward.

“You are looking at a completely intact U.S. Army World War 2 Station Veterinary Hospital that was built to service the horses originally of the 76th Field Artillery Regiment and later the 107th Cavalry’s horses”


DEMOLITION OF THE STABLES AND BLACKSMITH SHOPS MAY 2011
I was in Alaska at the time and was not able to document the buildings being demolished. A friend of mind did, Efren Lopez a military combat photographer did. I would like to thank Efren from sharing these posted images. This is my first real good look at these pictures as a tear rolled down my face. - Greg Krenzelok, U.S. Army Veterinary Corps Historical Preservation Group
