With its well-modulated classicism, the Camp A. A. Humphreys Pump Station and Filter Building illustrates how a time-honored architectural vocabulary can give respectability to an industrial building. The pump station was constructed in 1918 to accommodate Camp A. A. Humphreys, a U. S. Army training camp that was the predecessor of Fort Belvoir. Built to produce filtered drinking water to the camp and later Fort Belvoir, the pump station operated until 1970. In 1986 the Camp A. A. Humphreys Pump Station and Filter Building was leased to Fairfax County and was sympathetically converted into a homeless shelter.
