Bedford County, VA Masonic Lodge circa 1895-1906

Yashica 72-E Camera Test

 

I stopped to get a shot or two of this old building, and a man who lives across the road told me it used to be the Mason's Lodge. After the Masons abandoned the place, it was used for revivals for a while, and then the landowner decided to move his family in.

 

It was occupied until the mid 1960's, after which it entered that slow decline of any structure left to nature. There were a few black headed vultures using it for a roost until I arrived.
