American Legion Hut – Edmond OK

Description

“This American Legion hut is a one-story native stone building, constructed in the Craftsman style. It is located at the SW corner of Stephenson Park, and was a WPA project in 1936. It was constructed at a cost of $7,000 and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1993.

The building faces 5th Street to the south and has a front facing gable with a smaller gable over the entrance. There are wide overhangs and open eaves, with exposed wood rafters. The windows are four-over-four double hung.

The interior has three rooms, a large meeting hall as you enter with a kitchen and storage area to the rear. A large stone fireplace is located along the west wall. The building is currently the meeting place for VFW Post 4938.”
