Significance: Building #7 is significant as the only example of the picturesque Cottage, popularized by Andrew Jackson Downing and A.J. Davis in the 1840's and 1850's, at Fort Leavenworth. The residence was the second 'high style' quarters erected along Arsenal (Scott) Avenue and was built for an officer of the Department of the Missouri. The Department was stationed at Fort Leavenworth in 1865. The residences for the Department were concentrated on the north end of Scott, near the Commander's residence, which was the old Sutler's house. Building #7 was erected adjacent to the Commander's quarters, across the street.
