1. Inside the armory
I recently visited Harve de Grace and went out to the site of the old racetrack. Unfortunately, it was a weekend and no one was at the armory. I have been told there are some magnificent wooden floors inside the former clubhouse. Has anybody been inside the buildings and/or have any photos
In addition to the grandstand and clubhouse, there is an old building to the right of the clubhouse that appears as if it might have been an indoor paddock for the saddling of horses. Does anyone know what this building was used for years ago?
