Dublin Core

Description

Members of the American Legion Post #721 stand in a row with their arms around each other and smile for photographs. Two of the men hold shovels that were used during the ceremony.

The members of both the American Legion Walter Johnson Post #721 and the members of the American Legion Auxiliary worked hard in order to raise the money for a Legion home. The building cost $30,000, was built on Highway 6 West (now 2nd Street), and was open by the fall of 1963 (Lovetinsky et al., p. 72).
