Fort Ridgely-
Officers' Quarters

This is a picture of  the foundation where one of many officers' quarters stood...


This foundation of a building is similar to other officers' quarters across the parade ground.  It housed
two or three officers, their families, and their servants.  Archeological investigation beneath the
foundations uncovered materials that suggest the Dakota lived in this spot before the fort was built.

This Plaque Says:
This wood framed duplex probably housed two officers and their families.
The quarters were separated by a central wall and like similar quarters
of the time had servants in a separate building in the fort.
