Inscription.  Thurs. Dec. 7, 1865. Major Rose called all the companies together today, gave them a talking to and much good advice. There has been quite a spirit of unrest among the men. The men were anxious to return to civil life.

This structure was completed in 1867 to house the commanding officer and his family. Later, due to an abundance of officers and a lack of living arrangements for them, the house was shared with another officer. During his time in this building, the commanding officer was in charge of furnishing the building at his own expense.
 
Erected by South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks.
