Duplex Officer’s Quarters – Fort Robinson State Park

New public lodging built from original drawings and historic photographs resulted in the recreation of the Duplex Officers’ Quarters at Fort Robinson State Park in Crawford, Neb. The original building was a two story frame structure with sandstone foundation. The replica will look the same, but will have modern amenities and serve as a group lodge, interpretive center and meeting room.

The Officers’ Quarters is built on the existing foundation of the original 1891 building. The 14,900 SF two story building with partial basement and full attic resembles the historic structure with the exception of modern conveniences. The building has concrete foundation walls, wood structure, vinyl cased windows, asphalt shingles, cement board siding, Pergo and ceramic tile flooring, extensive wood trim to match the original building, split system heat-pump HVAC system and replica antique light fixtures. Each side of the building is complete with a full kitchen, 3.5 bathrooms and five bedrooms, each of which can accommodate four to six people. While the new version of the Officers’ Quarters meets ADA standards, only the main floor will be handicapped accessible. Made possible as a result of a private donation, the Duplex Officers’ Quarters will fill in a gap in Fort Robinson’s history while meeting a growing demand for lodging at the park.
