It then became apparent to the Lodge Brethren, that it was time to search for a new
place to meet. Therefore the members of the Lodge voted to sell the current building
they were using and relocate to the second floor of the Community Center on High
Street. The Brethren would continue to meet in the Community Center until 1999,
when the opportunity arose for them to purchase a old machine shop building and land
on Wine Street from Warren Peck, who was a member of the Lodge. Finally on Saturday,
May 13, 2000 the official Corner Stone was laid and the Lodge was open to all.
Tour the current Lodge.
View the building that would become James W. Bowers Lodge before, and after the laying
of the corner stone.
