Work is getting ready to ramp up at the Magazine. The masons should start their work in the next week, most likely. The general contractor will be on site to remove obsolete services from the inside of the magazine, and pour concrete for the landings at the doors. The overhead doors and wooden windows and doors should be up by the end of May to mid June, with painting and electric to follow.

Mark Your Calendars! Open House at the Powder Magazine: Saturday, May 14, 10am-12 noon. Note: The Magazine itself will NOT be open as part of this event since it will be under construction. Look for historic panels, however, telling about the long history of the 1818 structure—the oldest building on the Charles River Basin.
