American Legion Club – Downtown Minot – The American Legion Club was located in Downtown Minot on 2nd St, (Broadway) just south of the Rex Bar and Café. The American Legion Club moved into this building in 1952 after purchasing it from the Minot Daily News. The News moved to its new location at 301 4th St. SE. The American Legion Club moved to a new location on Minot’s north hill, now the home of Don Bessette Motors. The old American Legion Club location in Downtown Minot is now part of the parking lot west of Bremer Bank. I was in the old American Legion Club many times during my stint of driving a delivery truck for Coca Cola Bottling. It was always noted for having great food.
Dave, need to edit this just a bit. The building just north of the Legion Club was called the Zlevor Block. It's the one with the canopy. This was the location of the Ward County Independent newspaper and job printing from the 1920's until 1965 when my father, Bill Fuller, closed the business. The Minot Daily bought the rights to the newspaper. The building sat empty until it was torn down when American State Bank bought the Legion Bldg and adjacent properties and all were demolished for the Bank addition and a small parking lot.ReplyDelete
