WHITE CITY, Ore. (AP) - An Army hospital administration building built in 1942 in Jackson County has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Mail Tribune of Medford reports (https://is.gd/BsMCpF ) that the Camp White Station Hospital Administration Building is the first individually listed National Register property in White City and the 154th in Jackson County.

Local historian and author George Kramer says the building, also known as Building 200, is the single best remaining building representing the Camp White era.

Camo White was built after the federal government in 1939 commissioned a team of architects to design training bases to eb constructed around the country. Building 200 was constructed in 1942 to house hospital administration uses associated with the development of U.S. Army Camp George A. White.

Camp White was decommissioned after World War II.
