On the second floor is the Superintendent's Office, the reading room and library. The walls of this large room (50 by 80 feet) are decorated with Oil paintings, choice engravings, mostly representing some incident or battle scene Of the war while vases with gold fish flowers in pots canary birds, etc., enliven the scene and give it a home like look.
