Fort Devens Historic District was constructed between 1929 and 1940.

Considered a clear example of the City Beautiful or Garden City planning of that period, the area features Georgian Revival red brick structures and simple native landscaping of oak, maple, black walnut and elm.

A total of 103 contributing properties have been placed on the National Register of Historic Districts (1991).  The District includes: Vicksburg Square (1929-1940) a quadrangle composed of four brick barracks named for the 18th Infantry Regiment; and officer and enlisted men’s housing on Elm, Walnut, Grant, Auman, and Bates Roads.
