The houses on this post are known as the Officers' Quarters. St. Francis Barracks commanding officer from 1875 to 1883, Brevet Brig. Gen. Frederick Dent, lobbied for this construction. Dent allegedly asked First Lady Julia Dent Grant, his sister, to assist him in obtaining the needed funds through President Ulysses S. Grant's budget. They were successful, and drawings were approved in 1882 with construction following soon after.
The Victorian architecture is typical of government designed buildings of the time. These houses are strikingly similar to the buildings at Carlisle Barracks in Pennsylvania.
