American Legion Hall History

The American Legion Hall in McGill, Nevada, United States, was built by the Nevada Consolidated Copper Company circa 1918 as accommodations for single women working at the company’s employee boarding house. In 1925 the building was moved to its present location to serve as housing for single male salaried employees.[3]

The company gave the building to the American Legion in 1932. The original building plan of the one-story balloon frame building had a central hall with bedrooms on either side. The Legion removed the interior partitions, inserting tie rods to keep the walls from spreading. Toilets and a kitchen were placed at one end, along with a small meeting room with a stone fireplace, while the remainder of the space was left open as a social hall.[3]

The American Legion Hall functioned as a significant center of civic activity in McGill. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1994.[1]

Speaking of mobile apps, two of my favorite mobile apps for exploring the southwest are two different mapping apps one that builds your schedule and the other helps me look to see if my rural destination is taking me to private or public lands. Highly recommend both!
