Fort Norfolk Barracks

This 1810 building was described in 1824 as a "one and a half story soldier barracks, containing three ground and three upper rooms -- at one end a bake house." The Navy also had this structure renovated for ordnance purposes, using it for filling cartridge bags with powder, putting them into watertight copper tanks for shipboard use, and storing empty powder barrels.
