Statement of Significance (as of designation - December 8, 1976):
From 1926 until his death, this was the residence of Gen. William "Billy" Mitchell (1879-1936), the dominant figure in American military aviation between the World Wars. Mitchell foresaw the strategic value of air power; his advocacy of his ideas led to his 1925 court-martial.
