The main hangar was used to house aircraft that were being fitted with various types of rocket launchers. The attached building was used as the machine shop to build and modify weapon systems, and the small structure nearby was the heating plant. Hangar 1301 is now the home of the Air Mobility Command Museum. The original concrete ramp now serves as the outside display park for the museum. The hangar complex was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1994.
