    • Home to the National Guard until 2011, it has held boxing matches, presidential speeches, criminals in cells, and countless events. There is a stable, a firing range, a horse bath, and endless winding corridors that link as deeply to one another as they do to the city’s past. The armory building was dedicated in 1909 and has done more than its fair share of Tacoma’s heavy lifting. From training soldiers to hosting galas, it has seen it all.
