Pioche in Lincoln County, Nevada — The American Mountains (Southwest)
Masonic Lodges have used this building since 1872.
The Royal Arch Masons first owned the building when they were issued a Dispensation on June 12, 1873.
Shortly after that St. John's Lodge #18 was issued a Charter on Nov. 20, 1873.
At the turn of the century both of these lodges moved to the boom town of Delamar, where fire destroyed most of the building records and regalia.
The Royal Arch Masons then gave the building in Pioche to St. John's Lodge in about 1905 and it has been used by them continuously since that time.
