measuring 33.6' x 67. 2'. A guard house outside the wall was C
16.8' x 22.4'. The long ax-s of the major structure was oriented m

STATEMENT OF SIGNIFICANCE



Ut
z The Powder House, as a site. contributes significantly to the
0 total interpretation of colonial St. Augustiae in its role as a

military garrison town. With a capacity of 100, 000 pounds of
powder, it was the source of the munitions that were used in
U the redoubts of the town's defensive lines. Its location on a
then isolated sand spit points out the ever present danger of
storing large quantities of explosives in one place.
