Post surgeon's office with operating table.

Originally this building housed one company each of infantry and cavalry, about 150 men. The west half has been restored as the barracks for Company C, 3rd Infantry. In 1871 the east half was converted into the post hospital, as you see it today.


This new hospital had two wards, a mess room, dispensary, kitchen, storeroom and attendants' rooms.
