Geneva American Legion subdivides property, puts 5.9 acres up for sale

The Geneva American Legion property at 1115 Lochland Road is once again for sale, but in a reconfigured offering that includes less acreage.

According to a number of online real estate postings Tuesday, instead of the entire 12.9-acre property, the local legion is now selling a 5.9-acre section with lakeshore frontage for $999,999 and holding onto the remaining 7 acres.

Under the current offering — which can be found on and, among others — the area surrounding the Legion building and in-ground pool are not part of the parcel that is for sale.

Legion leadership did not explain why the property is now listed again under the reconfigured setup following online bidding in October that had been on the entire 12.9 acres.

“No comment is my answer to the Finger Lakes Times,” said Legion Commander Dale Mosher by email last week. “Geneva American Legion business is not open for public display. The future of this post will be decided by the veterans of Winnek Post 396, and we’re looking forward to another 100 years of service in Geneva, New York.”
