Significance: Building #73 is the only nineteenth century, single family brick residence at Fort Riley. It does, however, somewhat resemble in scale, materials, and design Building #117, #119 and #121 on Lower Brick Row, also built in 1889. These, however, are duplexes. Thus, Building #73 was the only one of its type built, and stands out on its site as the only residence and brick structure in an area where limestone predominates. Building #73 was built specifically to house the post's steam heat engineer. Later it was used to house non-commissioned officers.
