Year(s) Listed:

Built in 1912, the VFW Hall in Locust Grove is the oldest
remaining building in the communivty. It is a vital piece
of the history of this town, which has lost too many other
historic buildings in recent decades. A recent engineer’s
report found that the building is sound and worthy of
restoration, but if this does not happen, it will probably
succumb to the same plight as many other buildings in
town that have fallen into disrepair, burned down or were
torn down. It is a beautiful and plain prairie-style building
that has original wood flooring, casements, doors and
transoms in very good condition, in addition to an original
tin ceiling that is also in very good condition. This is a
piece of living history and our town needs it be preserved
so that everyone can continue to experience it.
