THE BARRACKS DISTRICT
The parade ground was the ceremonial center of fort life and will remain open space. Along Kent Avenue on its southern edge, the Barracks District consists of the community's largest buildings. After the state took over the property in 1947, the barracks were converted into the Governor Bacon Health Center where skilled care services continue to be provided by the State of Delaware.
30,000 sq.ft. of existing space is available for office and educational programs. 140,000 sq. ft. of new construction is also programmed into the district along with the restoration of 6 residential buildings.
