Caption: The Commanding Officers' Building
Additional Description: The wide trench is part of a Spanish Commanding Officer's Building. The foundation walls supporting this structure were built in trenches. Artifacts associated with this period of residence were found in trench fill-dirt. The bricks from these foundations were removed sometime before the 1993 excavation. Bricks are a valuable recyclable building material and some of the buildings in the historic district may well have used some of these bricks.
