National Guard Armory – Doniphan MO

Description

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.

  1. There use to be snowflake ball’s held each year here in the Armory, (1960–1970’s) Was wondering why they are not still held and how can we go about having one.
    Please send info if you have it on this. It was an awesome sight to see all dressed up so nice.
    Thank you
