Building 7

T.B. Patients in front of the hospital administration building.

This building was constructed of local stone by troops of the 1st Dragoons and 8th Infantry as a barracks in 1855. It was utilized in that capacity until the fort was closed by the Army in 1896. In 1900, it received its most interesting architectural features and became the administration building for the hospital.

'The brass bell in the Administration building called the hospital patients to receive their daily supply of medications and was one of the social gathering areas for the men.'

Jack C. Brooks, child at Fort Stanton in the 1930's
