The American Legion Home in Kissimmee is one of Osceola County’s most important buildings. Also known as the Makinson-Carson Post 10, this historic building is named after two hometown heroes from Kissimmee who fought in World War II. A monument dedicated to the two servicemen – Billie Makinson and Nat Carson – stands in front of the building.
The landmark is located on the north side of Lakeshore Boulevard, between Ruby and Monument Avenues in Kissimmee, and is within walking distance to the area’s Lake Tohopekaliga area and Downtown Kissimmee. Other landmarks, such as the Bataan Corregidor Memorial, the Employees Monument and the Monument of States are also within walking distance. It’s open free to the public everyday from sun up to sun down.
