Constructed in 1864

Soldiers spent much of their off duty time playing chess, checkers and card games. Drinking and gambling were commonplace. Stag dances became popular and helped to counteract the loneliness and isolation they experienced at this frontier post.

Journal Entry
Tues. Nov. 14, 1865. Took the best bath I could and put on clean clothes, first time in nearly three weeks. We indulged in a stag dance this evening.
