1929 Photo of the Soldiers’ Home’s Grant Building

I recently was lucky enough to find the photograph below of the Soldiers’ Home’s Grant building. The photo had a date of 1929 written on the back of it but it could have been taken a few years earlier. The Grant Building was constructed in 1911 as a barracks, mess hall, and recreation center.

    Is it still there? And in use?

    Nice find! I love how each of those gentlemen sitting near the sidewalk appears to have his own bench.

    I love that building. Got to tour the inside years ago. It’s falling appart but you can still see traces of the bowling alley and the old main hall is still impressive. It’s enormious, really hope it can be saved.
