American Legion

 Ridgefield's American Legion Hall just north of the downtown was originally a church in the late 1700s and later the Titicus school for grades one through three.  

The school was originally heated by a wood-burning pot-bellied stove.  Without plumbing inside the building, the school had a boy's and a girl's outhouse.  It didn't get electric lighting until 1928.  Ownership was transferred to the American Legion in 1939.
