Building 1

During the Army era, the fort's commander and his family lived in this beautiful stone structure. During the Hospital's tenure, it was the residence of the Medical Officer in Charge. Over the years, it is the only building that has remained relatively unchanged both inside and out.

"This vast and salubrious stretch of country, which is sometimes alluded to as 'a land of sand, sagebrush, and cacti, possesses an almost illimitable degree of those very elements which observation and experience have proven to be of the utmost value in the treating of tuberculosis."


Dr. Francis Crosson, Medical Officer in Charge, 1900
