The imposing two-story Masonic Building was constructed on the west side of the square in the 1907 of rough-dressed limestone. 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.
The Ballroom will be available for private functions and dance classes will be available on a regular basis.
