Elks Lodge No. 367 (Armory Hall)

-A A +A
Armory Hall
1892. Southeast corner of 3rd St. and Diamond Ave.

This armory became home for the state militia, sent in to crush striking miners, before the Elks purchased it in the 1920s. This large, three-story brick structure combines Italianate and Neo-Romanesque elements. Arched windows and doorways are of rough-faced red sandstone. A leaded glass fanlight crowns the double-doored front entrance. A stepped brick parapet and long porch mark the front of the building. The porch is supported by square concrete pillars topped by pediments, apparently a later addition. The Elks, who still meet here, have preserved the splendid interior with its hardwood trim and many original fixtures.
