This postcard mailed in 1910 from the Fort, was rescued from eBay. The view is from the parade ground looking west toward the commander’s house and gazebo. This was the west end of officer’s row which included 20 buildings for married officers and their families. If you have any postcards of the fort or its history, photos, family stories, memorabilia we would like to hear from you.
