The American Legion began meeting at its old location off Eureka Street in 1933. Originally established in March of 1920, officers would meet at each other’s houses or other locations until they were granted permission to use the Eureka property.
In 1947, the post purchased the building from the family that previously owned it.
“The good thing about this new area is that we have plenty of room to add on if we need to and the land is paid off,” Bret Watson, vice commander, said. “We felt like we were getting squeezed in at the old location.”
Legion officers are in the process of planning a grand opening ceremony, complete with a DVD slide show marking the progress of the post’s progression.
