Buildings 27 & 28
You are now at the end of "Officers Row". The buildings along this bluff once housed all the forts officers. The highest ranking officers lived at the far end overlooking the water.
At this end non-comissioned officers lived comfortably in these duplexes. Each unit has a full basement and two bedrooms upstairs. A covered porch once ran along the front and back of these houses. When built in 1908 these houses overlooked barracks and tent uncampments. With the reforestation of th eisland their setting has become much more secluded.
