Inscription.  After constructing a second-story meeting hall above two existing 19th century commercial buildings, the Nevada City Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks #518 dedicated its first lodge at this location on June 14, 1913. The lodge hall and street-level storefronts served the community until a devastating fire broke out on the morning of March 20, 2002.

Property owners Ken & Kay Baker and Gary & Patti Tintle then initiated a reconstruction program that has resulted in the current building-faithful to the architecture and style of the historic structure it replaced.

Contractor – Tintle, Inc Architect – Bruce D. Boyd
 
Erected 2003.
