The facility that now serves as American Legion Post 105, in Fayetteville, Georgia, was constructed as a federal Works Progress Administration (WPA) project in 1935.
“Lastly, I’d like to highlight the fact that we’re rapidly approaching our 100th birthday. You might have noticed in my video, my home post, which I’ve got a couple of post members here, was built in 1935 by the WPA, and it’s a log cabin. We’re awful proud of what we do in Post 105 in Fayette, Georgia. We have a culture of growth. Since I’ve been a member, we’ve grown from 81 members to 307 members. (Applause)”
