An 1891 fire, sparked by a defective chimney and fanned by high winds, destroyed five sets of wood frame officers' quarters that had been constructed in this area between 1883 and 1886.

Using sandstone quarried just east of the Fort, these two matched stone buildings were constructed in 1892 to replace the five that burned.

After the creation of the Theodore Roosevelt Indian Boarding School, building 102 was used as the Home Economics classroom for a time, and both buildings served as residences for school staff.

They were restored by the Tribe between 1997 and 2000.
