The Overnight Barracks at Historic Fort Adams provide
youths and adults alike
with a one of a kind 19th century overnight experience!
The first restoration project in the Officers
Quarters, our Overnight Barracks includes four modern bathrooms, a
common room with a kitchen area, oak tables and benches and a mid-nineteenth
century wood burning stove, as well as, three bunk rooms containing a
total of 38 bunk spaces.
Most of the overnight facility has been finished in plain style
to look like an Army barracks, while the chaperones quarters
restoration was done with great effort made to maintain its
original Greek revival Architecture.
