Constructed in 1881

Filling the countless hours proved to be a soldier's greatest challenge. According to one soldier, "everybody is writing who can raise a pencil or sheet of paper."

When mail was delayed, soldiers turned to reading books. The library was in existence in 1875 and contained ninety-four books.

This building also served as a schoolhouse and chapel.

Journal Entry

Wed. Jan. 3, 1886. We are mighty anxious to get mail. Nothing will make soldiers homesick so quick as not receiving letters from families or friends.
