Significance: The Torrington Armory and its use by Troop E are an integral part of the history of the Wyoming Army National Guard and the role it played in national defense, civil disturbances, and emergency relief from natural disasters. The armory is representative of standardized military architecture conceived for National Guard armories throughout the nation during the 1920s-1930s. It also represents a modification of this standard design to accommodate an indoor riding hall and stable facilities for Troop E, a cavalry unit.
