It was a movie theater, Jerry Strobel, American Legion first vice commander said. Strobel said the legion had to make the floor square to serve as its post. In the late '50s the legion added its Yellow Ribbon room and added a kitchen, reception hall and a second set of restrooms. And that was the last addition/remodel the legion has seen.
