Claremore Armory (demolished) – Claremore OK

Description

The armory was built by the WPA in 1935:

“This armory is a single-story, rectangular…structure constructed of cut, course, and rusticated native stone of buff color. The central portion of the roof is arched, while the remainder of it is flat…

As a WPA building this armory is exceptional for its quality of workmanship that reaches the level of artistic expression. It is unique within the city of Claremore in terms of type, materials, style, and most notably workmanship.”   (www.okhistory.org)

Since its addition to the Oklahoma Landmarks Inventory Nomination in 1985, the armory has unfortunately been demolished.

  1. How sad.
    Why was it torn down since certified Oklahoma landmark?

    Was someone wanting the land for themselves?

    What is there today?
