But Algona then boasted a national guard company, known as Company IF, and it needed headquarters, so the Pal-I ace came to be the Armqry. At the same time, the building provided Algona with a public auditorium. Lectures, bean suppers, dances, events were held there. As late as 1910 the Advance carried advertising of the appearance of lecturers at the Armory. But in that year the aged Armory caused Algona the loss of Company F. The state demanded a better Armory, and after futile efforts on the part of the town to provide one the company was disbanded. Then from 1910 till a year ago the building served as farm implement quarters for various firms, the last one being P. J. Greiner's. It has since been unoccupied,, and it was sold for old lumber last week to W. A. White. It belonged to the Galbraith estate, and was sold by E. J. Hough, administrator.
