An interesting page of Borrego history was the commission to design a new modular built American Legion Hall to be closer in town. It was more controversial than you could imagine! One group wanted to stay put and the other half wanted to build a newer better location...the stay put group prevailed. All that is left is this fading drawing.

Did You Know?

Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, began during the American Civil War when citizens placed flowers on the graves of those who had been killed in battle. After World War I, it came to be observed in honor of those who had died in all U.S. wars, and its name changed to Memorial Day.
