Rome Arsenal

Rome Arsenal: 1813-1873, Oneida County, Rome. US Arsenal, magazine, workshop, and Officers' Quarters built in 1813 during the War of 1812. Layout of the arsenal shows the road to Sacketts Harbor, now West Dominick Street, dividing the Commandant's house from the barracks and arsenal. Site was three acres. Commandant's house has been restored. The balance of the site is now commercial use buildings, some may be from arsenal period. A location just west between Arsenal Street and Wood Creek was the site of 1756 Fort Newport in the French and Indian War.
