Bet you didn't know....

Occaisonally when I find something interesting I will post it here.

Today's post is about Gadsby's Tavern located in Alexandria VA. A colonial building once operated as a Tavern and Inn. It is now a National Historic Landmark. A restauraunt is now operated in what was the Inn.

What you did not know is that when the building was slated for destrcution in the early 20th century, American Legion Post 24 stepped in and saved it from destruction. We owe a debt of gratitude to the Legionnaires that saved this historic landmark.
