Mountain View Colored Officers Club (MVCOC)

Building 66050, Fort Huachuca, AZ.

The MVCOC is the only club built specifically for “colored” officers during World WarII – a time of total segregation of our Nation’s military forces.  Its doors were opened in 1942.  Two all black assigned personnel assigned Infantry Divisions, the 92nd and the 93rd, trained at Fort Huachuca for combat in the Europe and Pacific Theaters, respectively.  The MVCOC was a haven for the young officers during their off-duty time.  A separate club was built for “white” officers.

In 1998 a US Army Corps of Engineers Study determined that the MVCOC was eligible to be placed in the National Register of Historic Places. The MVCOC has been placed on the National Trust for Historic Preservation 2013 List as one of America’s Most Endangered Historic Places.

Mission and Vision The Mountain View Colored Officers’ Club Project honors the past and informs the future through resource preservation, academic research, thoughtful and sound interpretation, development of heritage tourism, public programming, community outreach and partnership.
