The original magazine was a one room, double-wall building constructed of logs. It was made bombproof by a thick earth covering. The inner space was about 11 feet square. It held 1000 rounds for the guns of the Lower River Battery. An earthen-wall passageway, called a covered way, connected the door of the magazine with the gun emplacements and permitted the safe transfer of ammunition to the guns.
