Main Street Armory, built in 1905 by the U.S. Army for the training and processing soldiers, remained in use until 1990.

    1. My Great Aunt told me when I was kid that my Great Grandfather helped the Catholic Church move a cemetary from that site way back.

    2. Trapt came to the Main Street Armory last spring I believe it was. The concert was in the basement. Talk about a very uneasy feeling and catching things out of the corner of my eye and no not the fans.
