Hey folks, I was searching around the internet and found that there was a Civil war era Armory and Drill hall in Leonia NJ. Anyone know anything about it?

Do you guys know much about Armories in the 19th century? Did all counties have them for citizens? If so did townships have Armories aswell? Did a county have to apply for an Armory? Does anyone know anything about the topic?

Per the sign out front -
Built in 1859 by
“Jersey Blues Company”
of the English Neighborhood. Troops that trained here became Company 1 of the 22nd New Jersey Infantry Regiment during the Civil War. Other troops trained here served during the Spanish-American War in 1898. Used as an armory until about 1910.
