Building 3

This building was constructed in 1883 of adobe. It was designed to house two officers and their families. During the hospital years, it was used as doctor's housing, boasting two finely appointed apartments.

What a privilege it was to be stationed at this high facility. Only doctors were sent there who had pulmonary disease, and so were not required to work very hard. The cool air, the beautiful starlit nights, the riding horses, the mountain trails, the cattle, the wild game, the trout fishing, victory gardening, the golf course and many other forms of recreation available were all a joy I shall never forget.


Dr. Albert C. Rood, 1944
