The Silver Spring Armory, completed in 1927, was significant for its association with the Maryland National Guard 29th Division's service during World Wars I and II. It was one of the major civic buildings constructed in Silver Spring during the early years that the community blossomed into an important suburban center.

Architecturally, the building was representative of early 20th century Armory design featuring distinctive medieval detailing with a two-story castellated "head house" and a one-story barrel vaulted perpendicular "drill hall." The arched entry to the "head house" was surmounted by a cast concrete panel which read "MARYLAND NATIONAL GVARD". The Armory was razed in 1998.
