Long Description:
The former Ada Armory is a one-story building (210' by 122'). It is constructed of white native stone, rusticated and randomly laid. The central portion of the building is the drill floor which has a barrel roof. To the north and south are wings which have flat roofs. The roof on the south portion is missing, due to an explosion.

The north and south wings each have four arched garage door openings. The windows are elongated casement windows with concrete sills. The building has decorative parapets and pillars.

In 2006, when the government was shutting down numerous armories and bases, the armory in Ada was spared, however, the 1st Batallion 10th Infantry division is housed in a building further north on Broadway that was built in 1976.
