  • (Photograph by Julie Nicoletta)

The better preserved of the two remaining fort structures, this one-story stone building with a gable roof stands across the driveway from the tribe's modern, unassuming one-story community and administration building. The older facade has a single entry door with two windows to the left and three to the right. The original windows have been replaced with smaller double-hung windows, the lower portions of the openings having been closed up with wood panels. Two interior brick chimneys rise above the roof near the gable ends. A later woodframe addition projects from the rear of the building at its east end. The rubblestone walls have been whitewashed.
