During the first decade of the Theodore Roosevelt School, girls were housed in the old fort hospital. Since the old barracks that housed the boys was inadequate, a new boys' dormitory was scheduled for construction in 1931. Before that construction could begin, however, the old hospital building was destroyed by fire and the school was forced to build this girls' dormitory first. The monumental architecture of the dormitory buildings reflects a stated purpose of the boarding school to remove Indian children from their traditional cultures and indoctrinate them into Anglo-American society.
