Significance: Building #122 at Fort Riley is of interest as representative of the quarters built for non-commissioned officers at Fort Riley during the first decade of the twentieth century. Three of this exact plan and materials were built. Building #122 and #118 were built in 1903 and #125 was built in 1906. Then, in 1909, two more duplexes for non-commissioned officers were built on Lowe Place of the same exterior design and basic floor plan. These two later quarters, Buildings #173 and #174 were, however, built of different materials. Buildings #118, #122 and #125 were constructed of red brick with segmental brick doorways and windowheads with limestone sills, while Buildings #173 and #174 were constructed of rock-faced ashlar limestone with smooth-faced doorways and window lintels and sills. The basic structure, including shape, fenestration and porch arrangement, is the same. The floor plans vary only slightly (Buildings #173 and #174 originally had an entry hall and now have a side addition). In 1902, the Army Board made plans for increasing the garrison at Fort Riley to approximately 2,000 troops. This necessitated the construction of additional quarters such as Building #122. The architectural styling of Building #122 is a simplified Georgian design of the Colonial Revival period of the early twentieth century. In addition, the open court setting of which Building #122 later became a part, was extremely popular in the early 20th century.
