VFW/Iowa National Guard (Iowa National Guard), 213 6th Avenue South; c. 1947; Walter E. Bort, Architect, of Clinton; Daniel Haring, Contractor.A two-story building approximately 45 feet wide, it is faced with marble. Originally designed for the VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars), its ownership changed during construction and it was converted to a National Guard Armory. A vehicular entrance, with garage door, is centered on the first floor. The Armory stands on the site of the Clinton Theater and is a rare Clinton example of so-called "Modernistic" Style. The clean, simple lines of the building and the stylized figure reliefs as ornamental features are characteristically Modernistic.
