The stately structures surrounding the parade oval are the facilities of Plattsburgh Barracks, an active U.S. Army Post until 1944. The original installation was built during 1893-97 on the site of a military outpost which was established during the War of 1812. Later expansion of the post continued until the mid 1930's.

This structure marks the northern boundary of the original construction, built in 1894. It housed the Officers' Dining Room and Social Club as well as living quarters for bachelor officers. This was the social center of the post. Here the Regimental Commander and his officers enjoyed respite and entertained visiting dignitaries.

In 1980, the building was renovated and remodeled as part of a major project to preserve and better utilize the facilities of this historic military reservation.

I Saw The Marker

I wasn't aware of this marker after leaving the memorial church on the US oval I happened to notice it as I was fixing to drive out. It's located alongside the building that was the officer's mess. The marker itself isn't good condition right and readable and noticeable from the road.
