Regarding 19 N. Sixth Street.
This building was constructed in 1925 with two stories at a cost of $30,000. It originally served as the lodge for the Haines City Free and Accepted Masons #219. The second story was lost to fire in the 1940's, and the Masons relocated to a building up the street. The first floor was originally home to a real estate office during the Florida land boom of the 1920's. Later the Works Progress Administration (WPA) established a sewing room and mission here.
At the time of this page's submission to the database, the building was in use by commercial businesses.
