The Nashville American Legion Building is a historic American Legion hall on Arkansas Highway 27 west of Main Street, in Nashville, Arkansas. It is a single-story rubble-stone structure with vernacular Craftsman styling. Notable features include exposed rafters under the eaves, and stone "buttressing" extending from the sides and corners of the building. Built in 1930 by the Civil Works Administration, it is the only building in Nashville made out of this type of building material.[2]

The building was listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 1990.[1]
