Fort Winnebago Surgeon's Quarters Before Restoration

Fort Winnebago Surgeon's Quarters Before Restoration | Photograph | Wisconsin Historical Society
Fort Winnebago surgeon's quarters before restoration. Plans used in the remodeling of 1834 (furnished by the War department) were employed to determine the original placement of partitions, fireplaces, chimneys, stairway, doors, and windows. Much of the original flooring remains, and the original structure members - such as ceiling joists, roof trusses, and beams of hand hewn pine or tamarack - are also in an excellent state of preservation. Note in this photograph that the original log walls are covered by siding, which was removed in the restoration. In addition, the addition seen in this photograph has been removed and the chimneys have been restored. Three fireplaces have been rebuilt on the original foundations to conform to the general plan of the fireplaces of the period. Two of them have been rebuilt with bricks known to have been made at the Armstrong brick kiln (Parquette Park, Portage), which furnished the original bricks for Fort Winnebago.
