The plaque is mounted to the left of the entrance.
The building is not listed individually with the National Register of Historic Places, but rather as a Contributing Structure within the Downtown Haines City Commercial District, which was designated as a U.S. Historic District on March 7, 1994 (NRHP reference #94000150).

This building was constructed in 1925 with two stories at a cost of $30,000. It originally served as the lodge for the Haines City Free and Accepted Masons #219. The second story was lost to fire in the 1940's, and the Masons relocated to a building up the street. The first floor was originally home to a real estate office during the Florida land boom of the 1920's. Later the Works Progress Administration (WPA) established a sewing room and mission here.

At the time of this page's submission to the database, the building was in use by commercial businesses.
