Inscription. Constructed in 1909-1910 by the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, Tintic Lodge #711 was designed by architects, Richard C. Watkins and John F. Birch and built by contractor, Martin E. Anderson, a Logan contractor. Cost of the building was $30,000. The meeting hall for the Elks Lodge was on the upper floor, the rooms rented to doctors, lawyers, etc., and the lower floor was rented initially to Hefferman-Thompson, (general merchandise) Company. Later it was occupied by Norman and Jenson and J.C. Penney's. The small structure on the west side was added sometime between 1910-1923 and in 1929 the second story, five rooms for office suites was built. At that time the lower floor of the small building was occupied by the Eureka Mercantile Commission Company. The Elks “Tintic Lodge” was organized June 20, 1901.
