Built in 1889 to replace a smaller adobe structure, the Commissary Storehouse served as the Fort's food storage and distribution point until its closure in 1922. A solid building, the storehouse includes a stone cellar that extends three-fourth of the length of the building.

Originally planned as a stone structure, less expensive adobe was used after a wooden quartermaster's storehouse burned in 1888 and had to be economically replaced at the same time the Commissary Storehouse was constructed. The plaster adobe walls and corrugated metal roof aided in fire prevention at this very fire-prone post.
