Description: The Masonic Temple was erected in 1900 as part of Victor's revival after the great fire. The second story clubhouse has been home to the Victor Masons and the Order of the Eastern Star ever since. The building was a popular meeting hall not only for the Masons, but also for the International Order of Odd Fellows, Ladies of the Grand Army of the Republic, Modern Wodmen of America, Junior Order of United American Mechanics, Royal Neighbors, and the Unity Degree of Honor.
In the early 1900's, Summer A Hacley's Furniture Store occupied the first floor of the building where he sold "new and second-hand furniture, house furnishing goods, ranges and stoves of all kinds, tents, wagon covers etc." During World War I, a steam laundry was operated on the first floor of the building by J.J. Jenkins, who was the Grand Dragon of the KKK in Victor. Jenkins sold the laundry to Jack Powers who operated it until World War II.
