Marine Corps Recruit Depot broke ground on March 2, 1919. It’s known for its unique Spanish colonial revival style appearance. The overall site and specific building plans were developed by renowned architect, Bertram Goodhue, who also designed the building built in San Diego’s Balboa Park for the 1915 Panama-California Exposition. Today, the depot has 388 acres and 25 building listed on the national register of historic places. Due to its historic significance, there is limited availability for advertising. Therefore, all advertising is considered to have significant value if permitted to display on or in the base.
