(2002) Site of the kitchen
"Conveniently located behind the barracks, this structure housed a mess hall and a kitchen with a wood-burning range. Meals were served on a strict schedule, and the menus offered little variety."

"Built in 1855, this building was headquarters for the 1st Dragoons and the regimental band. At that time, regimental bands might have as many as 20 men and one or two chief musicians. Usually hired under special contracts, band members earned an average monthly salary of $14 to $16."
