Guard House

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 4 August 2018 in Architecture.

This building was erected in 1868 as a guard house manned by the Mormon Militia. Pipe Spring was chosen as an outpost and supply base in the Arizona Strip because of its reliable water and strategic location.

Beautifully composed. The house looks strong and able to withstand an attack.

The guard house looks very rugged. It was done just right the first time. Location and water would be very significant.
