Long Description:
This building, the former home of the Masonic Lodge No. 3, is located on the east edge of the downtown area, on the southwest corner of Buffalo Street and Main. This is a two-story red brick building with a flat roof, and little adornment. There are rows of corbelled brick just beneath the roof line. The original storefront and display windows have been covered with wood boards, leaving smaller multi-paned fixed windows. There are two double windows facing Buffalo, and a row of single arched windows facing Main. A granite Masonic emblem block is inset into the upper wall facing Buffalo Street.

Lodge No. 3 was chartered on 10/5/1874 just after this town was first established. The Lodge currently meets elsewhere in town on the third Monday of each month at 7:30.

A bronze plaque on the front of the building tells of its history:

HANCOCK BUILDING
John S. Hancock and his young
son Clement Allen Hancock
followed the MKT Railroad to
Caddo in 1872. They established
a business at this location and
became two of Caddo's founding
businessmen and community
leaders.
