Inscription.  
The log building had a shingled roof and was 145' long and 24' wide. A storage cellar sat under on-third of the building. While large, the building was not well constructed. Rain and snow blew through the roof and damaged supplies.

When the fort went from a four company to a two company post, supplies were moved into the drier south barracks. The log quartermaster building continued to be used for storage until it was dismantled in the 1890s.
