Inscription.  This Victorian style house was built in 1891 and used as Officer Quarters. It has three stories plus a basement. The foundation is stone with load-bearing brick on the lower floor. The second and third floors are a wood frame constructed with shingle siding. The large third floor has never been finished. It is so uniquely built that there is not one other building on the fort that looks like it. It is designed for a single family and is listed as an Officer Quarters, but at one time was listed for Bachelor Officers.

We are currently seeking funding to restore the building for educational purposes, and are excited about the future.
