Corning Amory (YMCA)
Now home to a local Y.M.C.A. branch, the former Corning Armory is a historic National Guard armory built in 1936. Designed in the Tudor Revival style, the National Guard moved out from the building in 1978. The armory replaced an earlier one constructed in 1858 (where the Castle Garden Apartments are now) called the Corning Arsenal. The present building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
