The first group to meet that led to the organization of Post No. 160 was a group of World War I Veterans that had served in France. That meeting, which was for the purpose of Memorial Day planning, was held on May 12th, 1919 and was at the State Armory on Park Street in Adams.
Another Memorial Day planning meeting, now open to all Veterans, followed on May 19th, 1919. At that meeting the Veterans decided to gather more information as to what kind of organization they might would want to join.
In another gathering on July 31st, 1919 the Veterans received information from 1st Sergeant Williams, formerly of the 104th Infantry, about the American Legion. It was at that meeting that the Veterans signed the paperwork to start a Post in Adams. Sergeant Williams brought the necessary papers back to Boston.
After endorsements on August 4th, 5th and the 11th, Lieutenant Kerr received the charter at the end of August and called a meeting of post 160 of the American Legion for Friday September 5th, 1919.
The permanent Charter is dated Sept 3rd, 1920.
