American Legion Post 24, Old Town Alexandria, Virginia

American Legion Post 24, Old Town Alexandria, Virginia Veterans strengthening America. The American Legion’s success depends entirely on active members. A museum and Gadsby's Tavern occupy the other two buildings.
(23)

First formed under another name in 1919, Post 24 has existed as Post 24 since 1920. In 1929, WW I veterans restored and preserved the 18th and 19th Century three buildings that form Gadsby's complex. In 1972, Post 24 gave the complex to the City of Alexandria and now occupy one building. We call it George Washington's Post because visiting Post 24 means seeing buildings that were visited by three centuries of American veterans.
