The Varnum Continentals built their Armory in 1913 in the medieval architectural style. The armory is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. A 1984 State Historical Building Survey described the Varnum Memorial Armory as remaining in perfect original condition. Among the key architectural details are the towers, the massive double doors, the multiple arched windows, and the wonderful crenellated parapet along the roofline.

The Military museum has many interesting displays including military weapons & artifacts from the 16th century to the present, Colt Model 1883 Gatling Gun and Limber and several artillery pieces from the Revolutionary War to WWI, military medal and ribbon collection, extensive military library including training manuals, histories, uniforms, equipment and weapons, and historic military uniforms.
