Commanding Officer Quarters
The building is prominently located on the north corner of the Parade Ground, a highly visible and dominating presence within the fort. From here, the commanding officer could observe troop drills, recreational events and every day fort activities.
After WWII, the building served as administrative offices for the Governor Bacon Health Center and in 2015 it became home to the Fort DuPont Redevelopment & Preservation Corporation.
