T. S. Barratt as superintendent, who had served the United States Government formerly at Old Point Comfort for a number of years before the war, while in the rear part of this enclosure was a large rifle-factory, containing all of the rifle-works brought from Harper's Ferry, Va., and handsome frame dwellings for various officers' quarters. With the exception of these last, all the other buildings were constructed of brick, trimmed with stone. Mr. Bell continued during the entire war as architect of all buildings, and was a Scotchman of national reputation. Some 100 yards from the rifle-factory were two large brick magazines for storage of powder and fixed ammunition.
