Inscription. These structures are associated with the evolution of Picatinny from a Powder Depot to a Production Arsenal. After the 1926 Lake Denmark Naval Powder Depot explosion, Picatinny rededicated itself technologically and architecturally as a Research & Development Facility. As part of this effort, laboratory facilities were constructed along Kibler Road, also known as “Chemistry Row”. Colonial Revival was chosen as the architectural style for this area to be compatible with the original headquarters at Building 151.
