Jackson Barracks

President Andrew Jackson signed a Congressional bill on July 19, 1832 that provided $87,000 for the building of a post to house U.S. troops. An additional $107,500 was appropriated by Congress bringing the total cost to over $180,000. The site for Jackson Barracks was purchased on December 16, 1833 from Pierre Cotteret. The area was chosen for its close proximity to the city and the four forts guarding it against a seaborne invasion like Jackson had faced here in 1815.
