National Register Listing: Beverly Powder House

Beverly has a new property on the National Register of Historic Places! On August 15, 2019, the National Park Service, Department of the Interior, accepted the City’s nomination of the Beverly Powder House for listing on the National Register of Historic Places. In September 2018, the City hired a historic preservation consultant to complete the National Register nomination for the Beverly Powder House. The nomination was completed and submitted to the Massachusetts Historical Commission (MHC) in January 2019, and the MHC approved and forwarded the nomination to the National Park Service in June 2019. The National Register Nomination for the Beverly Powder House can be viewed here.
