Completed in 1930, the NYS Armory housed 11 National Guard Units until Septemeber 1996. In March 14995 the Tudor Revival style building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places as a cultural resource worthy of preservation. NYS gifted the Armory to the City of Oneida in 2000. It soon became the treasured home to the City of Oneida Parks & Recreation Department. The interior maintains a high degree of design and craftmanship. The massive oak doors, original trim, oak handrails, cove molding, hardwoood and terrazzo floors remain intact. Professional organizations and civic groups find the facility perfectly suitable for sporting events, meetings conferences and workshops. With serveral different sized rooms, we can accommodate a meeting place for 5 to 350 people. Our kitchen and dining room facilities are ideal for luncheons and fundraiser dinners.
