The Floral Park Post #334 of the American Legion was organized by U. S. military veterans on August 13, 1919. Legion meetings in the early years were held in the Childs Hall on Tulip Avenue, later moving to the Round House at Floral Parkway and Carnation Avenue. The Floral Park Post #334 of the American Legion was organized by U. S. military veterans on August 13, 1919. Legion meetings in the early years were held in the Childs Hall on Tulip Avenue, later moving to the Round House at Floral Parkway and Carnation Avenue.
 
In 1924, property was secured on Elizabeth Street, and in the following year the Hall, referred to as the Post by members, was erected by volunteer labor from the membership. Carpenters, masons, plumbers and electricians, all with varying skills, contributed their time and labor to make a welcoming gathering place.
 

The American Legion and American Legion Auxiliary members continue to meet at the Post, hosting holiday parties, dinners for veterans from St. Albans Hospital and other events. In addition, community organizations and families utilize the first floor meeting room and downstairs meeting room and kitchen for special occasion parties, fundraising and other events.
 

In May, the Post is the center of excitement and anticipation as adults and children representing every facet of community life prepare for the kick-off of the annual Memorial Day Parade. Red Poppies and U.S. Flags are given out along the parade route in honor of the men and women who sacrificed their lives in all wars, protecting the ideals of freedom and liberty.
