A formal dedication of the newly constructed "Scout Hut," for Boy Scout Troop 91, was held on Oct. 26, 2013 at Pioneer Park in Orcutt.

In addition, the 85th Anniversary of Troop 91, the oldest continuously chartered Boy Scout unit in the Santa Maria Valley, was also observed.

For more than 80 years, the Troop held its weekly meetings in an old historical building on Orcutt School District property by an agreement the land grantor, Union Oil, had with the school district .

Several years ago when the building was deemed non-compliant with the required building codes for use on School District property, the Troop was required to relocate or tear-down the building.

Relocating the building was not feasible, and that's when American Legion pledged to the Scouts that a "Hut" would be reconstructed elsewhere.

As the chartered organization for Troop 91, The American Legion Orcutt Post 534 has always ensured the Troop had a place to meet to plan outings and community service activities, and a place to gather when receiving merit badges and other recognition toward pursuing their Eagle rank.

After a long campaign for a new home, the Legion got the green light from Santa Maria Parks Commission to rebuild the Scout Hut at Pioneer Park. Through generous contributions from individuals and construction-related businesses, the reconstruction of the Hut is complete, including the placement on the interior walls of old photographs and various historical banners and flags.
