State Armory Buildings …..well the Old Ones.

Whle digging around in Pocomoke City last Fall, I happened upon the old Pocomoke City Armory Building….I would pass by these buildings once in a while, and always thought they were neat looking, but never took a second look, until now. There wasn’t really a lot on the internet about the old buildings, atleast not with pictures, and we figured we were up for the challenge.

The Armory Buildings I am most interested in area the ones built after 1900 but before 1940. Here’s what I found so far, but I know I’m missing a few, but as time allows, I’ll complete the list. Here’s my list …so far. A complete and updated listing can be found on
