National Guard Armory (former) – Haskell OK

Description

This national guard armory was constructed by the WPA in 1934-36. It is no longer in use, though as of 2012, the building was still standing.

The Armory is constructed of native stone cut into irregular size blocks. It is rectangular, 141×120 feet with a front facade with large columns of stone flanking the entrance in a deco modern style. A large portion of the roof has a round vaulting. It is currently being used for storage.
