A classic Victorian mansion, this building clearly represents some of the Army's architectural motivations. Recognizing the difficulties for officers and their families of being assigned to remote posts, the Army built homes such as this one to provide a measure of urbanity. The placement of this imposing structure at the center of Officers' Row, with the status of residents decreasing proportionally with distance from the center, mirrors the social and organizational stratification of a military post.

Built in 1892 of fire resistant stone, this building was the fifth Commanding Officer's Quarters at the post. As the highest status residence, the C.O. Quarters hosted many visiting dignitaries and distinguished guests. Among these visitors was President Theodore Roosevelt who visited the region at least four times between 1911 and 1917.
