Beneath this building lies the powder magazine of Fort Washington, the major military outpost of the United States in the Northwest Territory, 1789-1808. The magazine was uncovered in October, 1952 when footers were being excavated. It is the only significant, identifiable evidence of the fort which has been found.

The magazine was a five-sided structure made of hand-hewn timbers and planking. It was approximately 25 feet deep. Here was stored the ammunition for the expeditions of the Indian Wars (1790-1795) which broke the Indian resistance and opened the Northwest Territory to peaceful American settlement.
