The wooden building behind them, to the right, is a structure known as the Barracks Building, it slept approximately 700 people. It is being moved to the area near the flagpole so the new Baggage and Dormitory Building could be constructed. The move was so that it could still be used until the new building was finished. It used to be parallel to the Powerhouse in the background.(NPS photo)
