Built in 1853 as a police station to keep peace as settlers poured into the former Dakota lands, it withstood several attacks in the U.S.-Dakota War of 1862 and became a training ground for Civil War recruits.
The site is located within Fort Ridgely State Park and is managed by the Nicollet County Historical Society.
