This is owned and utilized by the First Baptist Church today, but it was built as the Masonic Lodge. Thanks to Emory Gaines for the identification.

    It previously was the Masonite lodge purchased by the First Baptist Church , now used as a Minister Center, youth classes and activities.

  2. This is a beauty! It resembles several other lodges throughout Georgia so I am fairly certain that you are correct about it’s having been a Masonic Lodge. I have photographed a few of them myself in South GA. Even those that are not in use remain in fairly good shape. Some have been repurposed, some are used for voting. The old lodges are among my favorite old buildings.
