Inscription.  This building was completed in 1911 under the direction of the Quartermaster Corps of the U.S. Army for use by a field officer (colonel, lieutenant colonel, or majro) of the Coast Artillery Corps and his family stationed at Fort Williams. It was built to general plans prepared by architects of the Quartermaster Corps in Washington, D.C., in a modified colonial revival style. The building was constructed of brick over a wood frame with a slated roof and a concrete foundation at a cost of $14,620. In 1916, the designation of the building was changed to Captain's Quarters. The house was occupied by Coast Artillery officers and their families during the two World Wars, and by officers of the Fifth Infantry Regiment during the inter-war period when that unit garrisoned Fort Williams.
