Nine of these still stand to be viewed by the public. In 1866, the Commissary Storehouse, located on the eastern end of the south side of the parade grounds, was completed. This building was used to store hay and grain, stables for horses and mules, and a harness repair shop. Corrals were located at the rear of the building.
