Fort Schwatka, HD Dutch Harbor
Home  |  Dutch Harbor


Three 26x60 foot concrete "igloo" type magazines were constructed at Fort Schwatka to store war reserve ammunition.

From Army documents, it appears that two magazines served Battery Const. #402, while the third was used for small caliber AA ammunition. it is probable that the southern most magazine was used for the AA, as a number of AA support buildings are located nearby.

Unfortunately, no photos of the southern magazine are available at present.
