A brief excerpt from the historical and descriptive data from the Library of Congress:
“The cornerstone of this building bears the following inscription: “Erected A.D. 1867 A. S. Kimbell Capt. A.Q.M. U.S.A.” Maj. John Joseph Coppinger, commander of the garrison at Fort Gibson immediately after the close of the Civil War, was the first to occupy the new headquarters building with this family…This was a social center of considerable importance during the years the Fort was occupied…This house originally had walnut paneling in the rooms of the first story. Over the fireplace in the east room was carved this inscription: “Wilst I sat musing the fire burned”. (Statement by Louise Berry Walker who at one time lived in a house in officer’s row, Fort Gibson.)”
