BACKGROUND: The current location of American Legion Post 256 at 454 N. Main Street in Canandaigua NY was built in 1961 on the same site as the McKechnie building. Post 256 has persevered through the years thanks to the many dedicated members and volunteers. We are now 450 members strong and still growing. We are a diverse group of patriotic and proud men and women dedicated to supporting our fellow veterans of past wars and conflicts as well as our active duty men and women, and their families. Legion members volunteer and sponsor numerous community projects. For more information about Post 256 and to learn how you can help, please review our website pages. Call (585) 394-3790 to request a tour of our facility, or send us a message at post256@alny256.org. We look forward to hearing from you!
