Inscription.  
Constructed in 1910 at the head of Officers Row, the Commanding Officer Quarters sits on what was once Delaware City farmland.

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 the 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.
