POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- The Poughkeepsie Armory now has new owners.

The Greater New York Corporation of Seventh-Day Adventists bought the armory for $520,000 in a public auction.

The group said the space will be used for community programs and recreation. They won the bid, among six other bidders. Bidding started at $50,000.

The 23,000 square foot of real estate has housed the Army National Guard for nearly 120 years. The Armory was built in 1891 by Issac Perry, who also built the the state capitol and 26 other armories.
