  • This was a tavern and the family loved in the back. In 1918 the Masons met and formed the Masonic Lodge of Indiana. It is a step back in time to see the artifacts and the Masons still meet here...

  • We toured this place during Nights Before Christmas. It was interesting to hear the history of the house. It's currently used as a Mason meeting place.
  • On the second floor of this building, January 12, 1818, the Masonic Grand Lodge of Indiana was established. The building has been preserved with its heritage, and maintains its importance yet today. A wonderful place to visit for Masons and non-Masons alike. It's a piece of Indiana's history.
