Elkton Armory is a historic National Guard armory located at Elkton, Cecil County, Maryland. It was constructed in 1915 and is a two-story brick structure with full basement faced with light gray granite, with a narrower one-story drill hall attached. Its design imitates a castle, with corner towers flanking two-story curtain walls with irregular window placement. The front facade features a projecting center gate, flanked by buttresses, with a carved relief of the State Seal of Maryland above the entry.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.[1]
