Young Men's Christian Association

During the war, the Young Men’s Christian Association established “huts” in Europe to care for the fighting troops. In May 1917, it was announced that Coatesville would sustain a YMCA “hut”.  A. F. Huston (President) and C. L. Huston (Vice President) of Lukens Steel Company each pledged $2,500 to fund Coatesville’s “hut.”
