Nichols Apartments formerly Waynesville USO Club

Waynesville, Missouri 65583, United States

Created By: Pulaski County Tourism Bureau & Visitors Center


Nichols Apartments occupy a portion of the former Waynesville USO club, built-in 1942. The USO was a way for local communities to participate in the war effort during World War II, and the Fort Leonard Wood area was no exception. As the military was still segregated, plans called for separate clubs. At first space above a store was rented. The dedication of this USO building was held on March 7, 1942. It was an L-shaped building. The main lobby was two stories high, with a penthouse. All that remains is one wing of that building that were converted to apartments, but the building has since been vacated .
