About the Pawtucket Armory
The Pawtucket Armory, located in the heart of the creative city of Pawtucket, showcases great architecture that was designed by William R. Walker and Son, a well-known architectural firm in Providence, Rhode Island. Construction of the armory began in 1894 and was completed in 1895. Built of red brick, granite and limestone, the historical building continues to shine a light on the fine crafts people who work in and around this structure.
