Mankato National Guard Training and Community Center

Mankato National Guard Training and Community Center

Mankato, MN

66,500 Square Feet

When the existing downtown-Mankato facilities for the National Guard Armory became obsolete and cramped, they collaborated with the City of Mankato and Blue Earth County to build a new facility on the Hilltop area of Mankato.
Through this partnership, the Guard has a more comprehensive facility to meet the needs of its unit and the greater community. The City and County gained additional recreation and training spaces that are now shared with the National Guard.

The new site houses administrative offices, an assembly and drill hall, community gymnasium and recreation space, kitchen, locker rooms, unit storage, arms vault, vehicle maintenance and service area, and a separate vehicle storage building. It is located near a bustling commercial district with healthcare, shopping, lodging, and dining options nearby.
