Constructed in 1864

Living conditions at the Fort were crude. Wood bunks were furnished with wool blankets and mattresses filled with straw. The bunks were uncomfortable and often infested with a variety of unwelcomed guests.


A poor diet of beans, cornmeal and salt pork, combined with crowded quarters and a lack of bathing facilities made life in the barracks an interesting experience.

Journal Entry

Sun. Nov. 12, 1865. The fort has greatly improved since we were here a year ago. Stone quarters nearly completed for us to go into.
