Records are unclear as to the exact date of construction of the surgeon's quarters. It was a one-story, four-room, frame residence. Prior to its construction the surgeon was housed on officers' row. As part of his medical duties, the surgeon kept detailed records of soldiers and civilians receiving care at the hospital, as well as deaths and births. The surgeon also acted as health inspector and reported on local plants, animals, and weather. Many of these records and reports have been preserved and tell us a large part of what we know about Fort Hays and the people who lived here.

In 1900 the house was moved nearby to what is now the Kansas State University Agricultural Research Center. It remains in use today.
