1. T.R. School Teachers' Quarters Marker
Inscription. This house was constructed by the Bureau of Indian Affairs around 1930 to house Theodore Roosevelt School teachers and families. It deviates in style, though not in size, from the typical Officers' Row quarters.

Initially the house had a flat roof (note the drainage scuppers still in place on the west end of the house). Trusses were added later to support the pitched roof.
 
Erected by Fort Apache Historic Park and the White Mountain Apache Tribe.
