Fort Laramie National Historic SiteBefore you stand the remains of a six-unit apartment building constructed in 1884. Built for the fort's senior noncommissioned officers and their families, this new structure provided the best housing available for married enlisted men on post. The staff entitled to live here were the post ordnance, quartermaster, and commissary sergeants; chief musician; and regimental sergeant major. Often in their fortes and fifties with many years of service in the military, these senior NCOs were usually thoroughly professional and of high moral character.
