Top 10: The Watres Armory

I love this building, and I'm worried about it.

The National Guard moved out of the ancient Watres Armory in Scranton, into a new building on Olyphant Avenue in the city.  The cornerstone on the Watres says "1877."

What do you do with an old, massive armory?  Even though it's on the National Register of Historic Places, I fear this story will not have a happy ending.
