Designed by architect Gillette Woodman and built in 1901, the 23rd Street Armory is a massive granite building once used to store arms and ammunition; it is now home to the First Troop Philadelphia City Calvary. The First Troop Philadelphia City Cavalry is the oldest military unit in the United States and the only unit that owns its own armory building; today’s members are part of the Pennsylvania Army National Guard and are appointed by election only.

The venue is in the center of Philadelphia, 10 minutes by foot from the Amtrak station and 10 minutes from Rittenhouse Square. It is just steps from the 22nd Street Septa station.
