You don't have to be a gun enthusiast, which I'm not, to be impressed with the collection of weapons and the history of the armory. This and Harper's Ferry we designated by George Washington as the national armories. I loved watching the replicating machine invented by Thomas Blanchard in 1819. It created uniform gun stocks one after another. It was also interesting to see this historical weapons collections. The Rangers on staff were very friendly, knowledgeable and shared various tidbits about the armory. This was a spur of the moment decision to visit when passing through and we are glad that we did. My husband who is interested in gun history found it fascinating.
