Constructed in 1881

One of the doctor's duties was to record mammal sightings. In 1869, elk, buffalo, antelope, grey wolf, and black bear were recorded. The antelope is the only animal still sighted in this region.

Due to dwindling numbers, an order was issued prohibiting the hunting of prairie chickens in 1876. This may have been the first conservation practice implemented in the area.
Journal Entry
