What Makes this Post Unique
We have been in continuous operation at our present location since 1934, when the building was purchased from the Presbyterian Church which moved across the street. When the Church moved, they took the steeple and stained glass windows with them, so we had to do some redecorating. The Post borrowed $1000.00 with which they were able to convert the building into a meeting hall. Since that time, it has been known as the American Legion Hall. The Hall has been used for a variety of things since then (besides Post meetings);such as: funerals, marriages, a court room when the court house burned down, a school, a barracks for flood refugees and a Civic Center for the Town of Waverly and Humphreys County.
