Grant awarded to renovate National Guard Armory
(2008-05-20)
(WOUB) - Marietta has been awarded a 250-thousand dollar grant from the Governor's Office of Appalachia to renovate the city's historic National Guard Armory.

Fred Deel, Director of the Office of Appalachia, was in Marietta for a check ceremony yesterday.

So was State Representative Jennifer Garrison...who promised to try to come up with another 200-thousand dollar state grant for the project.

The renovation will turn the armory into a visitor information and multi-use community center.

It's expected to cost around one-point-six million dollars.

The Ohio National Guard Armory was built in 1914 and has been vacant for 10 years.
