Description (ca. 1921):
The Main Street Armory was originally built in 1905 for the purpose of training soldiers for World Ward 1. However, though soldiers continued to train there after the war, some people believed it could be used for multiple purposes. Various sporting events were also held there over the years, from lacrosse and basketball to wrestling. Not only sports found the location attractive. Other social events, such as circuses, concerts, and balls were also held here.
