Long Description:
Built 1916 as a National Guard Armory it was the first Armory built after New Mexico became a state in 1912. During WW II it was used as a USO to support soldiers training in Deming. The building still bears the USO designation. After WWII it was again used as a National Guard Armory. In 1977 the building was purchased from the State of New Mexico and became the Deming Luna Mimbres Museum.
