The Armoury
530 Queen's Avenue, New Westminster

New Westminster's armoury was constructed in 1896. Simply called the Armoury, it is the oldest continually functioning facility of its kind in BC, and an impressive structure at that. Following the first drill hall built in 1866, the Armoury was designed to last, and continues as the largest wooden hall structure in BC. The Armoury has served the Royal Westminster Regiment in its various guises throughout its history. Today, the Armoury provides accommodation to cadets and the reserve infantry Royal Westminster Regiment. (Phil Edge)
