Post 42

A unique gem in your backyard!

Our mission at Post 42 is serving veterans and supporting our community which aligns directly with what the American Legion here in Evanston has been doing for the past 100 years. Through fund raising activities and volunteer projects the Post has been a major player in the Evanston community.

Post42 offers a space for our neighbors to socialize, see and hear live music, attend and plan events, hold meetings, and take advantage of member benefits.


We’re committed to providing services and a meeting place for veterans, their families, and our neighbors. Post 42 is a safe and welcoming space that relies on your memberships and support.  


We have four beautiful spaces available for rent including the upstairs bar, outdoor patio, the lawn, and a larger venue space that can hold up to 120 people.
