Bill Authorizes Sell of Frankstown, 11 Other Armories

State lawmakers in Harrisburg have taken the first steps to sell-off 12 former armories – including the former 8-acre Frankstown Armory in Altoona.
House Bill 1112 – introduced by State Representative John McGinnis – passed unanimously on Wednesday and now goes to the Senate for consideration. Monies generated from the sale of the properties will go to the State Treasury Armory Fund. Major General Wesley Craig of the Pennsylvania National Guard says the sale proceeds will be used for maintenance to existing armory facilities.  
The properties will be sold via an auction to the highest bidder. The Tyrone Armory, closed in 2008, will also be sold.
