History

With the expansion of the Marine Corps in World War II, and the move of Headquarters, U.S. Marine Corps to the Navy Annex Building on November 10, 1941, Henderson Hall supported Headquarters personnel. Subsequent revisions and unit redesignations occurred with the designation of Headquarters Battalion on April 1, 1943. A second Headquarters Battalion of Women Marine Reserves was organized in September 1943, to provide barracks for a portion of the 2,658 women assigned. During August 1946, a substantial number of Women Marines were released from active duty, making Henderson Hall barracks available for the billeting of male Marines. The lands associated with Henderson Hall were acquired through deeds and other actions between 1943 and 1952. The Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia executed a Deed of Cession of Political Jurisdiction to the United States of America on February 15, 1954.
