Connecticut St. Armory Buffalo, NY – 186 viewsConnecticut Street Armory is the second largest armory in New York State and one of the largest in the country. When it opened during the Spanish-American War, it was called the 74th Regiment Armory. Williams B. Lansing was the architect of this immense, castle-like, Medina sandstone building. The Richardsonian Romanesque style of the structure incorporates towers, crenelated roof lines, tall slit windows, and many other fortress features. The armory is entered through a deeply recessed archway formed by especially large, wedge-shaped stones called voussoirs.
