Constructed in 1887During the Roaring Twenties, the Fort was leased for use as a hunting lodge. The hospital became the club room and main gathering place. Sportsmen came to hunt prairie chickens and ducks. For the poor marksmen, and for those who had more interest in poker, a professional hunter was hired to shoot the birds.
