In the days before automobiles, armies moved by horse and mule power. Fort Hancock stabled its army mules in this building. The teamsters, or mule skinners who drove the mule teams, lived in the house next door. In later years, the barn was converted to a barracks and after that, a service club.

Fort Hancock was in operation from 1895 to 1974.
