123 Mountain Road, 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.
