One of the town's largest and most ornate structures is distinguished by its central roofline pediment with three tiny round-arched windows, echoing the five larger second-story windows below with their stained glass tops. Almost six feet of corbeling, a diapered frieze, and a cornice heighten the facade. Arches with articulated keystones adorn the second floor, where the Masons still convene above the first-floor stores.
