This session is a short history and walking tour of the Fort Whipple Historic District and Prescott Veterans Affairs Medical Center campus. Roughly 50% of the medical center buildings are on the National Historic Register as contributing elements of the Fort Whipple District. The Prescott VA Medical Center is in a period of modernization and growth. The tour will include a discussion of current and future projects, and how the VA is using those projects to preserve and adaptively reuse the historic buildings, thereby preserving the integrity of the historic district while simultaneously allowing the VA to carry on with its mission of caring for America’s Veterans. *Self-driving tour.
