According to Park Ranger Dennis Lockhart, someone sprayed graffiti on the wall of the surgeon’s quarters in April. Then in July someone broke out several panes of glass in an old window at the fort’s visitor center. Last weekend the same window was broken out again and the air conditioner for the museum and visitor center (pictured) was destroyed. Lockhart estimates the panes of glass cost about $40 each to repair. The air conditioner will have to be replaced, costing an estimated $5,000.
