Significance: Fort Larned was originally built of adobe. In 1865 the first stone structure was erected. By 1868 there were ten permanent sandstone buildings. Nine of these still stand to be viewed by the public. The Bakery and Mess Hall was built in 1868. The north room housed the bakery, the south room served as a large mess hall. A tunnel, which connects with the building, permitted the garrison to obtain water from the creek while the fort was under siege.
