The Gothic Revival style building was the State Arsenal from the 1850s until the early 1970s when the Boone National Guard Center opened in Frankfort. During the Civil War, it served as a munitions factory where Frankfort women made ammunition for troops from Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio and Michigan. The Kentucky Historical Society and the Department of Military Affairs created the Kentucky Military History Museum in 1973.
