The castle-like Armory, designed by architect John Bentz Hamme, was built in 1915, of Port Deposit granite, with two hexagonal crenellated towers and its machicolated cornice. Bel Air's local National Guard units marched from its doors to the Mexican border, and to service in Europe in World Wars I and II.

Most recently, it was the home of the Maryland National Guard's Company D, 150th Combat Aviation Battalion. It had previously been the home of Troop D, 1st Squadron, 223rd Air Cavalry, Army National Guard, and other National Guard units.

On April 14, 1984, the Armory was dedicated and named in honor of the late Lt. General Milton A. Reckord, Adjutant General for the State of Maryland for 45 years.

In August of 2004, the Armory was donated to the Town of Bel Air. As caretakers of this iconic landmark, the Town has been dedicated to maintaining and renovating the building, and preserving its military, cultural, and community heritage. In November of 2015, the Town celebrated the 100th Anniversary of the historic building.
