National Guard Armory, DoniphanNational Guard Armory, Doniphan
WPA crews built this armory in 1939. It has a central barrel vaulted auditorium and surrounding single story offices, all of which has a native stone façade that is in excellent condition on the exterior. It is on the east side of Doniphan and likely used some of the rock masons who were used on the school rock wall project.
