This beautiful Richardsonian-Romanesque style building was a former armory built for the 25th Seperate Compnay of the National Guard. Its rugged and rustic look gives it an august appearance and the hardwood flooring and fireplaces define it's luxury. In 2004, the armoury was sold to Mostafa Tanbakuchi, in a private auction held by the State of New York. The building was then restored and renovated but its regal aura was kept intact. Today, Tonawanda Castle is used as a venue for private as well as local events. This entertainment venue has the charm to make an important event, a memorable one!
