123 Mountain Road, Masonic Hall

Masonic Hall

The Masonic Hall survives as the present Hiram Masonic Lodge and is the oldest structure in the Mountain Road Historic District.

It is distinguished by a late Georgian doorway, original to the 1828 date of construction. Pocahontas Edmunds, well known local historian, wrote that it was said to have the handsomest doorway between Richmond and Danville.

The position of the Hall directly on the street without a large and expansive front yard set a precedent that was followed in the construction of the district's other institutional buildings.

To the left of the Masonic Lodge is the Halifax United Methodist Church.
