The Olympia Armory, an Eastside Neighborhood landmark, is entering a new phase of life. In 2022, it is transitioning from a military installation to a Creative Campus owned by the City of Olympia. As it retires after over 80 years of military service, the Olympia Historical Society and Bigelow House Museum, the Washington Army National Guard, the City of Olympia, and many other partners have come together to commemorate the life of the monumental building and the lives it has touched. 

View our Gallery page to see some of the many images that have been submitted to this project by people who have served in the Guard, participated and attended events, and have other memories of this iconic building.
