Our most recent acquisition, this two-story building on Oliver Road previously housed the Palmersville Masonic Lodge and the Palmersville Baptist Church.
The Palmersville Masonic Lodge, chartered in 1869, closed in December 2014 and its remaining members merged with another lodge.
Our priority is the preservation of this historical building and its contents. We recently updated the electrical system and got the water system working again.
Maintaining and preserving the nearly 100 year old building will be costly (roof, for example), but we are hopeful that both present and previous residents of Palmersville who have memories tied to the building will help us out.
The Masonic Lodge requested that the Historical Society preserve the portrait collection of early lodge members. After completion of cleaning and repairing, these portraits will be on permanent display at our building.
