A community created with you in mind. Barksdale Family Housing communities are a great place to live, work, and play for families of all ages and sizes.  We designed it that way! Our residents represent every single branch of service and include Active Duty, Federal Civil Service Employees, National Guard and Reserve Members, Unaccompanied Active Duty Members and their roommates Retired Military Members, Retired Federal Civil Service Employees, and Hometown Heroes (no military association necessary). Neighbors of all ages and interests enjoy the sense of community that comes from living amongst your peers.
