American Legion Hut
You drive by this almost daily and think nothing about it but is one of Searcy's oldest and most historic buildings. It is on Race Street across from the White County Courthouse. It was constructed in 1939 with native fieldstone with funding support from Works Progress Administration (WPA). It was placed on the U. S. National Register of Historic Places in 1991.
What you don't see and if you are like me, you may have never seen the back of the building. I took a picture and here it is. It almost appears to be an add-on but only a Searcy Super Sleuth would know about that.
It has been used for social functions and meetings since built. Go back to this blog and see some important folks having a meeting in front of one of its two giant fireplaces.
