American Legion Post 49 location in Athens Alabama

Carlisle B. Grisham Post 49, Department of Alabama, the American Legion, is located at 124 Cloverleaf Drive, Athens, AL 35611. Use the “Location” Tab above map and directions

Regular Meeting: First Thursday of each month (except December), 7 PM.

Above is the Carlisle B. Grisham Post 49, American Legion building. It was constructed in 1999; however, our Post has existed since 1920. It was re-chartered by the national headquarters on December 23, 1929 and re-named for Carlisle B. Grisham. Comrade Grisham was a popular young man who lost his life in The Great War (WW I). Since its beginnings, our Post has been an active participant in the life and development of Athens and Limestone County.

We have for many years organized programs for patriotic events and we promote Americanism by organizing or participating in activities that promote good citizenship, particularly among young people. The American Legion stands for a strong America, and there is no better way to bring this about than to work with our youth and to help prepare them for their role as future citizens and leaders of America. In order to do these type projects we raise funds by hosting a monthly Chicken Stew and an annual Pancake Breakfast. More information about these activities is below.
