Inscription.  
While riding horseback on the windswept hill of his sugar maple grove overlooking his NCR factory, John H. Patterson decided that the grove would be a good place for a training camp for his salesmen.

Originally located at The National Cash Register Company's Sugar Camp training facility, this cabin was one of 60 constructed as living quarters for cash register salesmen while they were in Dayton attending training sessions.

During World War II, the cabins housed 600 U.S. Navy WAVES (Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service) as they worked on a classified code breaking project at NCR. The building was dedicated here on June 6, 2004, the 60th anniversary of Operation Overlord, the D-Day invasion of Europe.

Built in 1934 near the corner of Far Hills and Schantz Avenues in Oakwood, Ohio.
