Interpretive Objectives

To convey to the visitor an effective understanding of the physical and emotional setting in which the enlisted soldier of the Fort Laramie garrison lived during 1876, the peak year of the Indian Campaigns on the Northern Plains.

This can be done with breadth and depth through furnishings, since the upper story of the refurnished portion of the structure will contain the sleeping room for the company, and the lower story will contain the kitchen, messroom, cook's room, washroom, dayroom, library, arms room and N.C.O. rooms.
