Historic Edmond Armory Building Set for Temporary Closure

The historic Edmond Armory building located at 431 South Boulevard is set for temporary closure from October 1, 2018 until February 1, 2019.  The building, owned by the City of Edmond, currently houses the Edmond Historical Society & Museum.

The closure is taking place for Phase III of renovations to the 1936 WPA building. Phase III renovations will include updates to electrical and HVAC systems, along with additional accessibility enhancements.

“The museum staff, Board of Directors, and members of the Edmond Historical Society and Museum are thankful to the City of Edmond for their commitment of nearly $1.4 million to preserve Edmond’s historic Armory building,” said Historical Society & Museum Executive Director Anita Schlaht.  “The museum looks forward to a ‘Cleaner, Brighter, Safer, and More Accessible Future’.”

During the closure, museum staff will continue to work to facilitate their off-site programming at the Rodkey House Event and Education Annex in Stephenson Park and at the 1889 Territorial Schoolhouse on Second Street.  They will also be involved in moving and protecting museum collections during the renovations and preparing to reinstall and install current and new exhibits for the reopening.
