The Adrian Armory Community Center connects us, strengthens our community, and promotes collaboration; creating a more vibrant Lenawee County.

We provide educational programs, small business development services, located in a historic National Guard Armory that we have renovated into a state of the art business, events, and community center.

See our video – Featured in Episode 7 of D&P Communications “Your Network”


The Adrian Armory continues to propel local businesses forward in three main areas:

Adrian Armory Community Center – dedicated to the growth and development of Lenawee County through educational programs and small business development services.

Launch Lenawee – support and develop entrepreneurs and small businesses in Lenawee County, Michigan.

Makerspace Community Kitchen – support the culinary industry as they start and develop their businesses using our commercial kitchen space.

Thank you to our Board of Directors for their ongoing service and support: Donna Baker, Chris Clarke, Allen Heldt, Mark Murray, Mary Murray, Margaret Noe and Jessica Sattler.
