The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic, war-time veterans organization, devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is a not-for-profit community-service organization which now numbers nearly 3 million members, men and women, in nearly 15,000 American Legion posts worldwide.
Saugerties American Legion Post 72 is called Lamouree-Hackett, and is located between John and Partition Streets. (The front of the building faces John Street and there is a parking lot and park accessible from the Partition Street side.)
