Johnson Roberts Associates is going to receive a 2022 Preservation Award from the Cambridge Historical Commission for our work on the historic Magazine Beach Powderhouse!
The building is a gunpowder magazine* from 1818. It is the oldest building in the Charles River Reservation and is managed by the DCR.
*Magazine means any building, structure, or container, other than an explosives manufacturing building, approved for the storage of explosive materials.
A Powderhouse is a building for storing gunpowder or other explosive material.
