YMCAs on military posts were places for rest and recreation and were built by private contributions. The Fort Hancock Y offered refreshments, game rooms, and a reading room. Visiting families could stay in rooms on the top floor. The one-story wing on the right side in photograph was an earlier wooden gymnasium torn down in 1941 when the new gym was built.

Fort Hancock was in operation from 1895 to 1974.
