The date of this structure is not known for certain, but I’ve been told the building dates from about 1830. St. John’s Lodge 144 was originally established in Charlotte County, Virginia in 1786; it was chartered in 1826. The Masons held their meetings upstairs. For some time a barber shop occupied the lower portion, as the sign attests. The original structure was reduced in size in 1950 when the street was widened. The bottom floor is currently functioning as an ice cream parlor. This building is part of the Charlotte Court House Historic District, which was placed on the National Register of Historic Places 8 Feb 1995. NHRP #95000023.
