Arsenal Park

The northwest tower (1) was the first of the arsenal's four towers to be built (1839-1840) and initially served as the facility's temporary office. The three-story octagonal towers protruded beyond the corners of the main compound and were a defensive feature that allowed flanking fire along the exterior wall.

The "ghost" tower is a semblance of the original brick tower and enables visitors to understand the scale of these structures.
