Inscription. This Colonial-style brick building was built as a lodge hall and a residence for members. The front of the building is distinguished by four columns, decorative pilasters and a balcony. The grand ballroom has a rare, spring-loaded hardwood floor. In March of 1896, the lodge moved to The Dalles from Cascade Locks, Oregon, where it had been organized. Upon completion of construction in 1910, the organization moved into the Elks Temple.
