Abstract : The United States is obligated by treaty to relinquish control of the Panama Canal and all U.S. military installations in Panama to the Panamanian government by 31 December 1999. Creating a lasting record of these historic buildings is necessary for an accurate and complete history of the U.S. armed services in Panama, as recommended in the Department of Defense Overseas Environmental Baseline Guidance Document. That document and other applicable guidelines specific procedures for the documentation, preservation, and alteration of historic military properties. The Quarry Heights Military Reservation, noted for its architectural significance, was among the first military properties in Panama documented according to the standards of the Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS). This technical manuscript presents HABS documentation of Quarry Heights Bldg. 23, a field-grade officer's quarters. The original archival records, designated HABS No. CZ-4 and CZ-4-A, are on file at the Library of Congress, but obtaining a copy of these records may involve delays plus handling and reproduction costs. This publication provides the technical content of HABS No. CZ-4 and HABS No. CZ-4-A, on a timely and cost-effective basis, to Army and Department of Defense personnel with responsibilities for U.S. cultural resources located in the Republic of Panama.
