Inscription. Hiram Lodge No.43: Free and Accepted Masons, was chartered in the town of Mud Springs, as it was ten called, May 16, 1854. The Lodge met in rented buildings until the completion of this brick edifice in 1862.

On September 17, 1923 a fire destroyed most of the town, including this building. The building was rebuilt using the original bricks. The Masons met in the I.O.O.F. Hall in Diamond Springs at no charge until moving back here on March 26, 1925.

This building is dedicated to the memory of those early Masons and to 150 years of Masonry in El Dorado County.
