Mt. Angel American Legion Post 89
Mt. Angel Post #89 was chartered August, 1934, with 26 members. A Salem architect designed the building in 1935. It was built by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) about 1936, and formally dedicated about 1938.
Construction of the building was about to begin, or had started, when it was said that Works Progress Administration (WPA) projects can only be on government entity properties.
The property was owned by the Mount Angel Abbey. The Abbey sold the footprint of the building plus five feet to Marion County for $10. Thereafter building was owned by the Post, the property by Marion County.
Some of the services the Legion provides to the community include: the placing of the American flag throughout town during holidays and at each veteran’s gravesite on Memorial Day; providing a color guard for veterans’ memorial services, parades and celebrations and the sponsorship of scholarships.

Shoot has been cancelled.
This would be the 80th year for the annual fund raiser. I have
been crying so long I could make turkey soup with my tears.
A few onions, carrots and celery could add needed flavor.
But to liven things up in Mt Angel, the Post is having a raffle
with $1000.00 cash prize.
The tickets are $20.00 each with a total of 200 tickets. One
