The Powder Magazine is a surviving structure of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) camp of the 1707th Company. Located in Ouachita National Forest in the northeast corner of Scott County, Arkansas, it is a small stone and concrete structure about 4 by 3 feet (1.22 m × 0.91 m) and between 3 and 4-1/2 feet in height. It is located about 50 yards (46 m) south of the T-shaped junction of two forest roads (designated #96 and #99) in 1993) on top of a ridge above Dutch Creek. The structure was built to house the camp's explosives, which were typically used by the camp crew for road and bridge building projects.
