Armory back in play

By Bill Toscano

 

After languishing, seemingly unnoticed, for more than a year, the Whitehall Armory is suddenly the center of attention from several directions.

The renewed interest could delay or derail plans to move the town offices from the New York State Canal Corp.’s visitor center to the Skenesborough Volunteer Fire Company building across the street.

On Friday, Jan. 7, more than 15 people toured the building and nearby garage areas, led by two representatives of the state Office of General Services, which has oversight of the armory. The building is in remarkably good shape inside, especially on the main and second floors. It has a great deal of space for a wide variety of offices and other rooms.
