American Legion Memorial Stadium Ready for a New Future

June 24, 2021

American Legion Memorial Stadium has a bright future thanks to a new design that, according to Mecklenburg County officials, “can easily accommodate concerts, high school and college football, rugby and lacrosse again.” The stadium has been a designated historic landmark since 2004 and the Historic Landmarks Commission is pleased to have been involved in the design process that allowed the stadium to maintain its designation status while also receiving necessary attention to bring the stadium back into use.
