The Green Box was found neglected in our neighborhood during redevelopment a few years ago. With some research, the Green Box was discovered to be a WWII era mobile military office. After its use by the U.S. military, it was discarded in Olympia, Washington. A Garden City resident – a long-haul truck driver – adopted it and transported it on a trailer to a location behind her home to be used as a garden shed for many years. Instead of its life ending in demolition, the Green Box was rediscovered and repurposed in February 2018 and granted a new life in its current location. The Green Box lives on and now serves a much higher purpose, here in Garden City’s Live-Work-Create District.
