Building 9

This building, like most others on the parade ground, was first constructed in 1855 as a single story, stone structure. It included an Adjutant's office, library, and guard house. Later remodels added a second floor and arched porch. It was known as the amusement building by the hospital and included a general store, telephone exchange, post office and a 174 seat theater on the second floor.

'Movies were shown two nights a week, one for the patients and the next for the staff. Admission was a dime for adults and a nickel for kids'
