Buildings #101 to 103 - Barracks

Built: 1885
There used to be one more barrack of this type and two square shaped barracks farther down the street where the airport now lies. Each building housed 236 men or a little more than a company. At 43,800 square feet, the buildings represent some of the biggest redevelopment challenges on the site.

They were the first barracks on the post that had indoor plumbing and central heating.
