Fort Riley, Arnold Hall, Arnold Avenue, Riley, Riley County, KS



Significance: Arnold Hall was built during the major construction period at Fort Riley between 1880 and 1910. In its building materials, structural engineering, and layout, Arnold Hall was highly representative of residential quarters on the Army post. It and other buildings of the period contributed to the development of standardized Army housing. Arnold Hall was named for Abraham Arnold, a late Nineteenth Century post commander, hero of the Civil War, and first president of the United States Cavalry Association.
