Significance: #1 Scott Avenue is significant as the home of the commanders of the various divisions of the army, depending on the current operational functions of the post. It was built in the early 1860's as the residence of the commander of the expanding ordinance arsenal. The construction of the residence corresponds with the reinforcement of the garrison following the August 1861 battle at Wilson Creek, Missouri. In addition, the ordinance depot had been moved to Fort Leavenworth in 1858 and by 1860, Fort Leavenworth was designated an arsenal. Later, in 1874, Building #1 became the residence of the Commander of the Department of the Missouri, following the designation of Fort Leavenworth as the headquarters of that department. Then, after the fort became the home of the Command and General Staff College, Building #1 became the residence of its commanders.
