Some More on Lynn Haven

I got the photo of Roberts Hall, mentioned in the previous post.  Along with it came the information that it was built as a store with an upstairs meeting room used by the International Order of Odd Fellows and the local Grant Army of the Republic (GAR) for their meetings.The GAR was an organization of Union veterans formed after the war.  After all, these were Union veterans retiring to Lynn Haven.

Evidently, at least one church opened in 1911, the United Methodist Church, which is also celebrated its centennial last year.

I also believe that there is a monument to Union soldiers in Lynn Haven, something you don't often see in the South.
