Formerly, the home of the American Legion Hall, and located on Rt. 619 in Norton, Legion Park was constructed in May of 1996. It features a picnic shelter and access to an interpretive trail with kiosks that give information on local history and various regional tourists attractions. Available by reservation and on a no fee basis, the park contains picnic tables, grills and a water fountain for those who enjoy a rustic atmosphere, within a mile of the downtown area of Norton.
Also on this site is historic stonework, including a wall and fireplace, thought to have been built in the 1930’s by the Civilian Conservation Corp.
