Inscription. A joint effort of the Masonic and Odd Fellows Lodges, this Classical Revival-style building required nearly a decade to complete due to a lack of money and materials. A parade kicked off the long awaited laying of the cornerstone, into which was placed a casket containing valuable coins, historic documents, and even a stone from Solomonís Temple. The lodges shared the second floor until the Masonís moved to a new hall in 1910.
