Poplar Cabin - The Camp Office

Poplar Cabin
Of the two maps that I found of Camp David, one shows Poplar cabin near the Hickory Lodge.  The other map labels the same cabin location as just the "Camp Office".  The only reference I could find about Poplar cabin being the camp office came from the former website Camp David Tour.

According to that website, Poplar started out as a sickbay and supply office and was converted to the camp office when the officer-in-charge began residing full-time at the camp.  An office for the commanding officer (CO) and executive officer (XO) was added to Poplar in 1970.
