American Legion Hall

-A A +A
1918. 24 4th St.

The wood-frame American Legion Hall originnally functioned as a one-story lodging house for single women employed by the NCCC. In 1925 the company moved the structure from Lower Town to its current location in Middle Town. At this site the building served as a staff annex before becoming the American Legion Hall in 1932. The interior was then converted into a large meeting space, with smaller areas for a card room, kitchen, and rest rooms.
