Building 12

Photo etchings caption:
Building 12, torn down in 1930, was actually attached to Building 13. When it was taken down, a chunk of the roof fell into a lady's bedroom.

Originally built in 1855 of adobe, the building that occupied this location was used as the commissary warehouse. It consisted of two offices and a large storage room capable of storing all the food necessary to sustain a military fort. This building was eventually razed in 1933 as was the adjacent tubercular hospital in 1938.

'The commissary's storehouse is large enough to contain a supply of provisions for two years. The stores are in good condition and of good quality, except for the hams.'


Lt. Col. Joseph E. Johnston, September 21, 1859
