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 1⁄2-story administration building with an attached large, gable-roofed drill shed. The building features a 5-story octagonal tower at the northwest corner.
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.
The Humane Society rents a single room in the basement of the Armory.
