Site of Building 11

This building was constructed in 1940 on the site of building 11 (formerly barracks and then the original tubercular hospital). While it does not match the style or construction of most of the original fort buildings, it does reflect the Territorial design of historic New Mexico. This large building was used as a dormitory to house single nurses working at the hospital.

'Having contracted tuberculosis in Iowa and being hospitalized myself, I welcomed the opportunity to serve my fellow T.B. patients as a nurse at the Fort Stanton Hospital.'


Lola Hulbert Spragg, Registered Nurse
