The supplies in the storehouses were under lock and key with the buildings being in full view of the sentry in front of the guard house.

Fort Churchill was built in a square shape in a pass through the desert which guarded the path to Virginia City's Comstock Lode and Carson City. There are no "walls" because this fort would have been aware of any potential attack long before any attacker got even close
