The Armour building, at 1901 Third St., was built circa 1910 as a meat processing plant. It is significant, local preservationists say, because it is one of the last surviving buildings in Central Louisiana whose existence was dependent on rail transportation, and because its architectural embellishments made it quite ornate for a warehouse at that time.
