"The Masonic Lodge, built in 1914 at 113 Temple Street, is the only two-story commercial building in the historic district. It is a masonry building covered with stucco. One of its two street-level entrances and its four sash windows above are set within segmental arches.

"The Masonic Lodge served the needs of the Masonic order on the second floor and utilized the first floor as a cotton warehouse to take advantage of the lucrative storage business.

"The block bounded by Temple Street, Velvin Lane, Church Street, and North Candler Street is a series of attached buildings constructed by the Cleghorn Brothers between 1908 and 1929. The brothers owned a harness shop, a hardware and building materials business, and owned a substantial number of houses and stores. In 1908, this block also included The Villa Rica Star newspaper, the Masonic Lodge (which was destroyed by fire and rebuilt in 1914), W. F. Strickland and Son Carriage Repository, one house, and the Villa Rica city hall and jail. ~ NRHP Nomination Form
