Renovated Warren Armory almost ready to open


Warren artist Richard Kaiser puts the finishing touches on a giant mural of Venice, Italy, at the Jefferson Street Armory in Warren Thursday morning. After three years of renovations, remodeling and structural work, the building is almost ready to open to the public. The mural is a reproduction of one that hung in the Armory around the turn of the century; Mr. Kaiser based his version on an old photograph of the original. For more information on the Armory, see the website.
