Building 4

Constructed in 1855, this building was originally a single story complex of four quarters for officers and their families. It has evolved over time to be more spacious and comfortable with a second story, bay windows and covered porches. Seen in the photo are buildings 4, 5, and 6; officer's quarters, quartermaster and barracks. Also visible at the lower left of the photo are the remnants of the acequia, or water channel, that surrounded the parade ground and brought fresh water to the fort.

'Fort Stanton was a beautiful post, with the best quarters in the Army at the time, but it was like being buried alive to stay there. Nothing ever passed that way, and it was seldom a stranger came among us.'
