Building 13Built in 1855, as a single story, gabled roof structure of simple design and construction, this building housed officers and their families. It was here that 2nd Lieutenant John J. Pershing was quartered in 1887 and where he met his future wife. On August 2, 1861 this building, along with the rest of Fort Stanton, was burned and nearly destroyed in advance of invading Texas Confederate forces. It was rebuilt after the Civil War and was modified several times over the years, receiving its greatest architectural features in the early 1900's.
