In 1967, the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 152, Brooklin, purchased the old Brooklin House Hotel at 26 Baldwin Street. Striking workers at General Motors in Oshawa renovated the old hotel into a Legion Hall in 1970 and it was officially opened on June 6, 1970, the 26th anniversary of D-Day. The Brooklin Legion Branch was founded in 1929 and closed in 1932. It was later revived by barber Fred Phillips in 1966.
