The historic landmark is scheduled for auction in February.
Exactly a year ago, the community was working together to preserve the historic Walter Robinson Legion Post 450 from sheriff's sale. Now the post that offered membership and served as a gathering spot for black veterans during segregation is back on the sheriff's sale list. According to the Pittsburgh Legal Journal, the sale is expected to take place on Feb. 4 and the Chadwick Street post owes $110,576 in mortgage debt. The American Legion averted sheriff's sale in 2011 when the organization, unable to pay $125,000 in debt, filed for bankruptcy. The building has been designated a historic landmark by the Pittsburgh History and Landmarks Foundation. "Like" us on Facebook | Follow us Twitter Check out more of today's top headlines.

Many of the 35 properties with outstanding liens either don’t have a physical address or sit vacant and abandoned.
