Inscription.  The first Masonic Lodge in Calhoun County was chartered as Lavaca Lodge No. 36 in 1848. After a period of inactivity during and after the Civil War, the Port Lavaca Lodge disbanded.

Milby Lodge No. 84 until 1935, when the name Lavaca Lodge No 36 was reinstated. Over the years, its members have included businessmen, soldiers, and state county, and city officials.
