Old Powder Magazine

At the close of the day on Thursday, Alan Stello, dressed in period clothing, carefully removes a replica of the "King's Colors" that would have flown over the Powder Magazine when it was built in 1713. The building started as an arsenal for the British and "the last time is was used in a military campaign was in 1780 in the Revolutionary War by the Continental Army," said the museum's director. A "Betsy Ross" flag is also hoisted daily. (Wade Spees/postandcourier.com) April 18, 2013
