Inscription.

In 1944 the American Legion and American War Dads joined forces to honor the war dead with this Memorial Building. In 1947 the V.F.W. and the Ladies Auxiliaries joined them in a fund drive to save expenses. Volunteers cleaned salvaged bricks until the wee hours of the mornings. Masons would lay the bricks the next morning. On May 30, 1951, it was dedicated to both the dead and the living veterans. The city took over the building in 1986.
