Restoration Continues for WWII Barrack in Natoma

Natoma American Legion Hall Painters August 2020With paint buckets, brushes and rollers in hand, volunteers Linda Crawford, Laah Tucker, Arielle McLarty and Sheri Beisner recently joined in the American Legion Hall Restoration Phase II project in Natoma.

Kitchen and bathroom ceilings and walls were "lifted" in bright white, while new LED light fixtures were installed by American Legion Post Commander William Workman and volunteers.

The former World War II Army Air Corps barrack for B-29 pilots was moved across country from Walker Air Base to the Natoma site decades ago.

The transformation is possible through grants from organizations, businesses and volunteers giving credence to the American spirit in the Kansas heartland.
