Four enlisted barracks were hastily assembled during the winter of 1867-1868. They faced the parade ground on three sides. Each barrack held a company of 60 to 100 men and consisted of two squad rooms, a room for the first sergeant, and a small storeroom. The mess hall and kitchen were located in back of the barrack buildings.

Quartermaster First Lieutenant Frank Baldwin requested the addition of washrooms to the barracks in May 1870. "The men now have to wash in the open air, consequently having no opportunity offered them of washing their persons? I therefore consider it a necessity to have the wash room built." A short time later the request was approved at a cost of $548.40.
