The Armory of the First Corps of Cadets is an historic armory at 97-105 Arlington Street and 130 Columbus Avenue in Boston, Massachusetts. The four-story granite structure was designed by William Gibbons Preston and built in 1880. Due to political unrest during the period, the building was designed to withstand mob violence. Its most prominent feature is its six-story tower. It is the only High Victorian armory in the city.
The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973. It was known as the Park Plaza Castle and owned by the adjacent Boston Park Plaza Hotel & Towers, which used it as a banquet facility up until 2014. Currently managed by another company, the venue space is now referred to as the "Castle at Park Plaza."
