The first guardhouse at Fort Apache was built of logs and located on this site. In 1876, this stone building - the second oldest surviving structure on the post - was constructed to replace the original log structure. It was replaced as the guardhouse around 1890 to make way for the construction of barracks along the south side of the Parade Ground.

The wood frame portion of this building was added later by the Bureau of Indian Affairs when this building served as a bath house for the boys at the school, who were housed in the barracks immediately to the north until the construction of the boy's dormitory in 1932.
