This building is a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark, and a Texas Historical Marker provides some background:

The Eureka Masonic Lodge entered into an agreement with W.L. Hutcheson to build this two-story structure in 1897. Over the years, while the first floor housed a variety of businesses, including Hutcheson's hardware store, the lodge continued to occupy the second floor. Exhibiting influences of the Romanesque Revival style, the building features round-arch windows, a detailed keystone on the upper central window, and a red sandstone cornerstone.
