Two images of the Carter Memorial GAR Building

This building was erected for the Grand Army of the Republic in Nunda by John J Carter. Carter, one of Nunda's first Civil War volunteers and winner of the Medal of Honor, made a modest fortune in the Pennsylvania oil fields after the War. The Memorial Building, with a Civil War era soldier standing guard over it, was finished in 1906. It is now the headquarters of the Seager Werner American Legion Post.

The image above was taken from a postcard postmarked 1909. We thank Karen Gibson Strang for sharing the postcard with us. The photograph below was taken sometime in the 1930's.

Here is a mystery - what happened to the two cannons that are shown in front of the building in the image below? If any visitors have information on these cannons, please let us know!

See our Veterans Project Page for the Seager Werner Post to see what historical resources are available in this historic building.
