Union Civil War veterans and townspeople constructed this largest frame building in the county about 1910 as a meeting place for Garfield Post 39, Grand Army of the Republic (GAR), and a community center. The city, as requested by Women's Relief Corps 9, auxiliary to the post, gave it to Zephyr Post 118, American Legion, first veterans group to organize after the GAR disbanded.
