Oswego Armory is a historic National Guard armory located at Oswego in Oswego County, New York. It is a brick and stone castle-like structure built in 1906–1908. It was designed by State architect George L. Heins. It consists of a ​2 12-story administration building with an attached large, gable-roofed drill shed. The building features a 5-story octagonal tower at the northwest corner.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1988.[1]

Oswego YMCA[edit]

After the closing of the Armory in 2004, The Oswego YMCA purchased the Armory and now runs most of its Child and Teen activities out of the building.

Humane Society[edit]

The Humane Society rents a single room in the basement of the Armory.
