The Historic Arcata Veterans Memorial Building
Both American Legion Post 274 and Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2542 call the Arcata Veterans Memorial Building home. Jeff Sterling, Commander of Post 274, told us about the building’s history, and the efforts underway to restore it. He then took us on a tour, which included some areas you may not be familiar with, including the Scout Room and the Veterans’ Canteen.
“I’ve got the whole meeting in my head!”
