And the West is History: National Guard Armory and Horse Stalls on Main – 1988

The horse stalls (at right) along Main Avenue between 25th and 27th streets were part of a 1930s Works Progress Administration project to improve the fairgrounds. This photo was taken about a decade before they were removed to create the current fairgrounds, recreation center and ball fields we know today. The National Guard Amory (at left) was not taken down, but was instead remodeled and repurposed as The Boys and Girls Club. – Ed Horvat for Animas Museum, edhorvat@animasmuseum.org (Catalog Number: 04.05.261 from the La Plata County Historical Society Photo Collections)
