James J. Howard Marine Sciences Laboratory staff and visitors stand on the first-floor porch of Building 74, located on Magruder Road in the historic Fort Hancock section of Sandy Hook, during the October 18, 1993 ribbon-cutting and dedication of the newly constructed Laboratory building, not pictured, across the street. Prior to the destruction of the original Laboratory building, roughly half of Building 74, formerly Army barracks, had been used by Laboratory staff as overflow offices and laboratory space. After the fire, the National Park Service extended use of the remaining half of the building to dislocated Laboratory staff. Building 74 became the Laboratory headquarters in 1987 when NOAA announced that rather than closure or relocation, the Laboratory would stay on Sandy Hook, New Jersey. The building subsequently underwent renovations after construction was completed on the Laboratory building.
