Constructed in 1887

During the Roaring Twenties, the Fort was leased for use as a hunting lodge. The hospital became the club room and main gathering place. Sportsmen came to hunt prairie chickens and ducks. For the poor marksmen, and for those who had more interest in poker, a professional hunter was hired to shoot the birds.

Guests also enjoyed boating on nearby lakes. There was even a putting green on the parade grounds.

Journal Entry
