BURNS, OR -- The Burns Paiute Tribal Council is set to purchase the Oregon Army National Guard Armory in Burns, as part of a $250,000 agreement with the Oregon Military Department. The tribe plans to turn the property on Fairview Ave. into a community wellness center. 

 

The Burns Armory has been vacant since 2013. According to the Military Department, "At that time, there were only eight Oregon Army National Guard soldiers living in Burns assigned to a 21-person engineer unit." The other soldiers in the unit lived in and around Bend. A year prior, the unit began training at the Bend Armory. 

 

The Legislature approved the sale of the Burns Armory in 2017. The tribe will pay $225,000 up front, and then $5,000 each year for five years.
