The Dalles in Wasco County, Oregon — The American West (Northwest)
The first floor was divided into storefronts, the second floor had officers, and the third and fourth floors occupied by the Masons. The upper floors contained the lodge hall, banquet room, ballroom, and kitchen.
In 1915, the Masons deeded the building to French & Co. In 1920, the conversion of the upper three floors to residential use opened the first apartment house in The Dalles; the 57 unit Court Street Apartments. The architect was E.C. Price. In 1927, the property was sold to Brugman Lumber Company and the name was changed to The Commodore Apartments.
In 2002, the building was renovated by Cook Development Corporation to be used for offices, apartments, and storefronts. The building is now named The Commodore II.
Erected by City of The Dalles.
