The imposing two-story Masonic Building was constructed of rough-dressed limestone, on the west side of the square in the 1907. The lower floor provided rental space for commercial businesses while the second floor served as a meeting place for Masonic Lodge #216. After a fire in 1929 destroyed much of the original structure, it was rebuilt, and although the building had a new owner, the Masons continued to meet on the second floor until 1974. Since that time the Ballroom has been beautifully restored. Gleaming hardwood floors, mirrored walls, intimate lighting, a state of the art projection screen and sound system, among other beautiful amenities compose the remodel of this historic building. The Ballroom is available for private parties and rentals year round, please contact us for a tour of this stunning venue.
