Barrack

-A A +A

Opposite the officers' quarters, on the downhill side of the parade ground, were two large U-shaped barracks, of which only one survives. The one-story porch across the front and Palladian windows in the gables added touches of grace to these large structures and helped to relate them to the officers' quarters.
