ADAIR VILLAGE — Workers lowered two relocated barracks onto the foundations of their new structures Friday at Adair Village.
The buildings date back to Adair Village’s early days, when Camp Adair was constructed in 1942 as a World War II military base.
The two buildings — both 125 feet long by 25 feet wide — were moved to the current location on William Carr Avenue from their former home on the Santiam Christian Schools campus in March.
Candice Dinnis, manager of the relocation project, said that as of now, there are no set plans for how the two buildings will be used. Possible functions include a community center.
However, she said each building will have new siding, new roofs and new windows. The clear fir floors will be sanded and refinished in keeping with the buildings’ history.
“We’re going to try to restore them so they look like the original barracks,” Dinnis said.
