Historic Masonry Befitting the Freemasons

Wisconsin Masonic HomeI frequently drive past these three brick buildings just outside Dousman, WI. Located on Hwy. 18, about a quarter mile west of Hwy 67, these quaint structures are lined up like shed-size dominoes.

Sturdy dominoes, that is.

Interested in their history, I made a few phone calls. I didn’t come up with much other than they are now owned by the Wisconsin Masonic Home. Apparently, there was once a beautiful, brick home on the grounds as well.

The building pictured above was at one time a church, according to the phone receptionist at the Masonic Home. I love the ornate trim and chimney design. And look at the brickwork over the double doors. Awesome!

Does anyone know the story on these buildings? Please share! Each structure has a story of its own and deserves to be told.
