Summary

Significance: Part of post-Spanish-American War spurt in building, this powder magazine was part of a pair (see CA-1839-1). Building #13 (Powder Magazine No. 4) was demolished for a freeway intersection. / The Benicia Arsenal Powder Magazine was one of two such outlying buildings erected in 1903. The Benicia Arsenal is a National Register historic district and a California State Historic Landmark. This building was determined to lie outside the boundaries of both Landmarks and not to be individually eligible for inclusion in the National Register. Nonetheless, the California Department of Transportation and the California State Historic Preservation Officer agreed that the building should be recorded prior to its demolition for its associative values, so that there would be a record of its existence entered with the HABS records for the Benicia Arsenal.
