Twelve former Pennsylvania National Guard armories are officially being put up for sale – including two here in Blair County.
Both houses of the Legislature passed the authorizing legislation unanimously and Governor Tom Corbett's office said Tuesday he plans to sign it. The bill authorizes the sale of the former Frankstown and Tyrone armories – along with armories in Scranton and Lancaster, two in Elk County and one each in Centre, Columbia, Franklin, Huntingdon, McKean and Northumberland counties.
The state Department of Military and Veterans Affairs says the armories, built between 1904 and 1938, were once the heart of their communities but have been replaced by newer facilities.
The armories are listed on the National Register of Historical Places. Prospective buyers will pay a discounted price in exchange for preserving the exterior facades of the buildings for 25 years.
