Long Description:
The Lytton Building is a three-story brick building which originally housed the local Masonic Lodge. The building is currently vacant and for lease, with the exception of an electronic cigarette outlet which appears to be housed on the second or third floor.

The Stillwater Frontier Lodge was first chartered in 1891 under Indian Territory. It was later re-chartered under Oklahoma Territory as Lodge No. 6, and then chartered again in 1907 under Oklahoma State, with its No. 48 reinstated. The lodge occupied this building from 10/30/1901 until 2/17/1950. During that time, the building was shared by the Payne County Sherrif as his Jury Room, the Woodmen of the World, Oddfellows and Knights of Pythias.

The building has a flat roof with stone coping. The parapet is stepped forming three bays on the upper wall. Each bay has a row of corbelled brick, and the center bay has a stone panel with the Masonic emblem and the year 1901. The second and third floors have two bays, each with three arched window units that have stone sills. The units have side-by-side fixed panes with a fanlight. The third floor windows are boarded from the inside, and the second floor window have been bricked in.

The ground floor has a stairway leading to the upper floors on the right. The storefront has a double glass entry door, flanked by nine display windows. The clerestory has tall segmented windows, with some portions plexiglass, some glass, and a couple boarded.
