Read all about it

The American Legion Hall was built in 1922 as the temporary home of the Trinity Methodist Episcopal Church. When the American Legion took possession of the building on June 4, 1935, it quickly became a meeting place for every fraternal group, social group, and professional organization in Greybull. It was used by the schools (the elementary and junior high schools were only a block north) to accommodate classes for which they had no space, most notably for band practice, music classes, and kindergarten. It was a polling place until at least 1955. Every organization in Greybull used the Legion Hall for meetings at some time during its period of significance. Due to its status as a gathering place for a variety of organizations and functions, the Legion Hall has served a prominent place in the social history of Greybull. It was home to a broad range of community activities that strove to serve not only the Veterans that were member of the Legion, but also the community as a whole.
