Long Description:

101-103 South Washington Street: The Masonic Lodge is a two-story brick, two-part commercial building originally constructed in 1883 and remodeled in 1913. The building has three bays with the central bay containing an entrance opening onto stairs leading to the second story. This entrance has a ca. 1960 metal and glass door, original brick piers, and above the door are yellow glazed brick belt courses and pediment. The 101 and 103 storefronts were both remodeled ca. 1960 with brick bulkheads and metal and glass display windows. The 103 storefront retains its original entrance with a single-light glass and wood door. Transoms over both storefronts have been covered with wood panels. Above both storefronts is a belt course of yellow glazed soldier and sailor brick courses. The upper facade is composed of two bays with extensive use of yellow glazed brick. The two window openings on the facade contain ca. 1960 metal windows. The window openings retain original surrounds with glazed brick lintels, sills, and quoins. The corners of the building also have glazed quoining. Above the windows are brick dentils, rectangular panels, and belt courses of glazed brick. At the roofline is terra cotta coping at the parapet walls and decorative concrete finials. The interior has been remodeled but retains open floor space.

– National Register Nomination

The building appears to be in good condition and is currently occupied by a barbecue restaurant and a spa. It appears that the Masons no longer use this building.
