American Legion: Brown and Lynch Post 9, Easton, PA
Brown & Lynch Post 9 was named in honor of the first two soldiers from the city of Easton that were killed in WW-I. The post was originally located at 218-220 Northampton Street in Easton, PA, until October 8, 1974. Due to a fire at the post, and after years of meetings at various locations, the post was relocatedin the mid-1980s to the Palmer Township location.
