World War I and II veterans organized the Glen Allen American Legion Post 244 in 1946. Sheppard Crump, a member of the First Caucus of the American Legion and later the Adjutant General of Virginia was the first Commander. Dr. Alexander McLeod, World War I veteran and legionnaire, donated the land to build the Post. The first Post shared a steel Quonset Hut structure with the National Guard built from state and private funds in 1949. It burned in 1962. This brick structure replaced it later in the year.
