Building 151, the original Arsenal Headquarters, stood at the nexus of the "power intersection with Parker Rd. This Colonial-Revival Style building is prominently situated near an open area that has functioned as a parade grounds, an airfield, and finally as the Golf Course. To the west are the Colonial Revival Officer's Quarters; to the east are the chemistry facilities.
