The Augusta Arsenal was the only U.S. arsenal built in the southeast. The United States Arsenal at Augusta was built in 1819 at a site located on the Savannah River. Upon the outbreak of the Civil War the arsenal was turned over to the Confederacy and remained in the possession of the Confederate States until the end of the war when it was returned to the federal government. The 1930's HABS survey notes that a rose garden with a stone sundial in the center existed next to the men's library building.The Augusta Arsenal remained in operation until it was closed in 1955. The arsenal now serves as the present site for Augusta State University.
United States Arsenal is now on Augusta College. Gift of Mrs. William Bush. No 35 mm slide.
