New American Legion post building to replace old
Bob Raver felt bittersweet as he watched the demise of a building close to his heart, yet he assumed a pragmatic attitude.
“Out of the ashes comes the phoenix,” Raver, an Army veteran said, referring to Tuesday’s demolition of the American Legion Post 472 building at 323 E. Indianola Ave. on the South Side. “It will rise.”
If all goes according to plan, a new, one-story ranch-style building will rise at the same location within 45 to 60 days to replace the original, which was built in the late 1800s.
