—Fort Bliss Main Post Historic District —The five brick buildings in this area are the post's first two hospitals. The first, Building 8, was constructed in 1893. Both floors were originally encircled by a wood verandah. A covered walkay extended to adjacent Building 9, an isolation ward and later morgue. High ceilings, well-ventilated rooms, and sunny porches were the areas answer, but no cure, for tuberculosis, the ailment most treated here.
