Just to the southeast is the site of the "old" post which dates to 1814. Amidst rumors during the late 1880's that the post was to be abandoned, public pressure for an ongoing military presence is said to have strongly influenced the eventual construction of this permanent installation in 1893.
Herein were located the offices of the commander and his staff and, originally, the post mess hall. A marble tablet in the entryway honors men of the 21st Infantry Regiment who lost their lives in Cuba during the Spanish-American War
