Barracks Building #22 is a contributing structure in the Fort Hancock and Sandy Hook Proving Ground National Historic District. Throughout its history, Fort Hancock played a major role in the defense of New Jersey's shoreline and New York/New Jersey Harbor.

British and loyalist troops occupied Sandy Hook during the revolutionary War. As methods for warfare modernized, Fort Hancock evolved from a permanent masonry fort manned by heavy artillery used to protect sea lanes to an air defense role using antiaircraft batteries and Nike missiles.

Restoration Funding has been made possible in part by the Garden State Historic Preservation Trust administered by the New Jersey Historic Trust/State of New Jersey.
