American Legion Hall,

Post 230

107 E. Park St. / PO Box 261

Hallettsville, TX 77964


Following World War 1, the American Legion Hudgeons Post 230 was formed in 1920. The Post was named in honor of Mr. and Mrs. Eli Hudgeons who were married 2 weeks prior to Eli's departure for France. Both Mr. and Mrs. Hudgeons died in service to their country, with Eli perishing in 1918 when his ship was torpedoed by a German Submarine, and Margaret died in 1919 of Pneumonia while she was a Red Cross Nurse in San Antonio. Early members met in a room above the Hallettsville Post Office, the post then moved to the Recreation Hall located in the Hallettsville City Park. They purchased that Hall in 1963, but it burned down in 1965.  The current American Legion Hall was built in 1965 following the fire.  In the past three years extensive renovations to the Hall have been completed with the majority of the funding coming through the generosity of the Dickson Allen Foundation. Membership in the Post grew from the small number of Veterans who created the Post in 1920, to 265 members following WW II, Korea,and Vietnam. Numbers have been declining since the early 1970's to today's membership of 145.  Membership today includes Veterans of WW II, and all Military conflicts since then. Of course, all Veterans who are not members are urged to join this fellowship of Men and Women who still proudly thrive under the motto, In Peace, as In War - We Serve!
