Constructed parallel to the installation rail line, the warehouse district represents the supplies and services hub of the installation. Until the improvement of roads between Washington D.C. and the Belvoir Peninsula, the railroad served as the main source of transportation into the installation, making the warehouse district the chief access point for all goods, equipment, and soldiers needed for the early development and training activities at Camp A.A. Humphreys. The surrounding warehouses were used not only as general storage and supply depots but also as maintenance and repair shops. Buildings in this district were constructed as needed, with the majority of structures being temporary or semi-permanent structures built during and between World Wars I and II. At the height of its operations in 1943, the warehouse district contained 45 warehouse buildings. The remaining warehouses in the district today still provide storage space and maintenance services to Fort Belvoir.
