Great Lakes History Trail Stop 4The Mess Hall and Galley were designed to serve one thousand two hundred eighty men, but during WWI, over five thousand sailors were fed at each meal. The ornamentation on the outside walls of the Mess Hall suggests the purpose of the building. Its original terra cotta shield over the doorway was lavishly decorated with fruits and grains, repeated along the walls and is the only original building without nautical motifs.
