Long Description:
The Depew Lodge of Free Masons is significant as a locally distinctive example of the Neo-Classical Revival style of architecture and as an example of the work of Buffalo architects Mann and Cook. It was built between 1916 and 1919 for the local Masons, whose organiztion was located in Lancaster although it was named for Chauncey Depew, President of the New York Central and Hudson River Railroad. The builder was Frank G. Hansel, who used some of the stones from the Maute Foundry in Lancaster for construction. It has served as the Masonic Temple from the time of its completion.
