— Putnam Memorial State Park —This structure was reconstructed in 1890 on the foundations of the original 1778 building. Long thought to be an officer's barracks, recent information is now leading archaeologists to believe that it was actually the camp magazine which held the kegs of gunpowder. The location far away from the troop quarters and being semi-enclosed in the earthen bank support this theory.
