A Brief History: The Smithtown Armory is located at 148 Smithtown Boulevard Nesconset, New York. The armory was originally constructed in 1961. The property the armory sits on is approximately 7.6 acres. Arms as well as ammunition were stored and issued to authorized users at the armory. Weapons were also maintained and repaired here. In 1961 the 587th Transportation Squadron was stationed here and in 1986 the  Support 71st Infantry was stationed here. In 1991 the armory was closed and in 1992 is sold to the town of Nesconset.  The armory remained vacant until 2010. Today the armory is the Nesconset branch of the Smithtown Special Library District.

Haunted History:  There have been reports of soldiers walking around the grounds of the newly reconstructed library, and then just disappear.  People have reported feelings of being watched and cold spots inside of the library.
