Rome in Oneida County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Fort Stanwix National Monument
The orderly room was the headquarters of the fort, where officers conducted the general business of the fort: writing daily garrison orders, holding meetings, completing paperwork and staging Courts Martial.
This room has been laid out to look like an orderly room, although the original orderly room was located in the headquarters building, which was not reconstructed.
