Morris in 2008: What happened around here?
Because its mission has changed in the nearly 40 years since it was built, the Morris National Guard Armory's renovation began.
The armory needed more storage space and interior renovations to bring it up to code and make it a more inviting place for larger gatherings, such as weddings or community dinners.
The Morris Guard was an infantry unit when the armory opened. It's an artillery unit now, which entails caring for considerably more equipment.
