Watertown Arsenal, Building No. 312, Wooley Avenue, Watertown, Middlesex County, MA
Significance: Building No. 312, constructed to facilitate the erection of gun carriages, is significant for its industrial association with three adjacent buildings to the west, south, and north (312, HAER No. MA-20-F; 37, HAER No. MA-20-D; and 43, HAER No. MA-20-C), with which it formed a tightly functioning gun carriage manufacturing complex by the end of the nineteenth century. Its design features reflect its function and illustrate the precursor style to the subsequent Erecting Shop built in 1917 (311, HAER No. MA-20-E) at Watertown Arsenal.
