American Legion Hollywood
Article Surfer
<— Prev    |    Next —>

Whether the motorists who cruise through Hollywood are anticipating some glorious moments on the 101 Freeway, or whether they have just enjoyed some glorious moments on the 101 Freeway, thousands speed down Highland Avenue and crane their necks to the West as they pass the monumental structure that houses the American Legion at 2035 North Highland.

Decorated with insignia unique to the American Army, Navy and Marines of W.W. I, the clubhouse was erected in 1930 for the surviving (and dues-paying) American veterans of that ugly war.

"This building, with its ornamental entrance of colored terra cotta, set in a solid concrete front, with broad steps and terraces in the foreground and graceful tower and pyramid surmounting it, was produced by Legionnaires at a cost of $270,000.00. It represents not only the home of the a Legion post but also a memorial to the fighting divisions of the American Army and every American who took part in the World War."

The building was designed by two Los Angeles architects, Gene and Joe Weston.
