ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. — The Coast Guard has dedicated a new barracks and galley complex at Elizabeth City.

The Daily Advance of Elizabeth City reported that the new complex dedicated Tuesday carries the name of the facility it replaced, Thrun Hall.

The name honors the late Charles Theodore Thrun, one of the Coast Guard’s first aviators. He was killed in a 1935 crash off New Jersey.

The new three-story barracks has 155 rooms to house 310 Coast Guard members.

The new galley can seat 112 for meals inside with space for three dozen more outside.

The $17 million complex replaces a building constructed in 1968.
