  1. I’m not sure about this but is it the Carrollton Masonic Lodge?


  2. What a fabulous building! Is it the masonic lodge in Fayette?


  3. Sold in 2004 to a Brookhaven lumber company…


  4. Thomas Hinds Lodge No. 58 F&AM, the oldest brick structure in Fayette, constructed in 1854. Since 2004, the Lodge has been closed, owned by a Brookhaven lumber company.


  5. Until they banished them…


  6. Volume 60 of “The Southern Reporter” describes a 1912 dispute over the lease agreement between the Thomas Hinds Lodge #58 and the Presbyterian Church of Fayette – resulting in the Church moving out of the lower floor of the building.


  7. I was online (working!) at 3 when the picture was posted. I could figure out it was a masonic something…due to the symbol on the door. Not being from MS, that was it for me.

    Imagine my surprise when I checked later tonight to discover it was Lafayette!…which I accidentally stumbled upon a year ago when I made a wrong turn out of Natchez. After we drove out of town–thanks to a local who helped us get back to the highway–I remarked to my friend “I should have been taking pictures of all these neat buildings.”


  8. Yay, points all around, although *mysteriously* there’s still a little recent tidbit of information out there if someone else wants to earn a point.


  9. I believe the building was recently acquired by the City of Fayette.


  10. I should know this, but I can’t recall. Is is about to be a MS Landmark? I know there’s been talk about demolishing it, but think I heard that there was something in place (or going in place) to protect it more than it is.
