Fort Donelson Cemetery Lodge

Fort Donelson Cemetery Lodge

This 1877 house served as office and quarters for the cemetery keeper until 1931. The design of the building is Second Empire, which is characterized by gables and a roof consisting of two slopes on all sides.

The look of the house is the same as it was in 1877 except for the addition of a kitchen and porch in 1836. Today it serves as park staff quarters. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
