Move from Worthington to Dayton? The Masons may move from Worthington according to this article written by Dean Narciso in the Columbus Dispatch. The Columbus Dispatach article has a great photo of the Masonic Lodge on High Street too...'Grand Lodge of Ohio' taken by Ed Matthews. Center for Masons could go to Dayton
Narciso's article says:
"A little-known part of Worthington's heritage rests in a museum of Ohio relics situated below a 190-year-old meeting hall, the oldest Masonic temple west of the Appalachian Mountains."
Costs could be cut by moving west to Dayton... it would cut costs fifty percent according to the Columbus Dispatch article.
A Worthington City Council member said "there is a deep historical significance with them being here."
The Dayton Masonic Center, on West Riverview Drive in Dayton is a gorgeous building... overlooking the river. I worked in Dayton 20 years ago.. I had a couple of listings on the side street between the Masonic Center and the Dayton Museum of Art in 1988? or 1989? Annunciation the Greek Orthodox Cathedral is right there too. I loved that area! The Dayton Masonic Center is much more grand looking than the building in Worthington... The Dayton Masonic Center was called the Dayton Masonic Temple and it looks like a Greek temple... or Roman? It was built in the 1920s.
The Worthington building is 190 years old according to Narciso's Columbus Dispatch article.
A Move from Worthington - it's home for years
Worthington's been the "Grand Lodge of Ohio" 's home though for 50 plus years! The Grand Lodge of Ohio has been in Worthington since the 1950s because of the central location. The Grand Lodge of Ohio had been in Cincinnati prior to moving to Worthington. The local lodge would inherit the building that is now the 'Grand Lodge of Ohio' at 643 High Street. They'd rather not.
Here is a photo of the Masonic Lodge building from 1939, prior to it becoming the 'Grand Lodge of Ohio.' This is Don O'Brien's photo. The picture above is also Don O'Brien's. The color photo of the corner of High Street and New England Ave. was taken in 2009. Seventy years of history documented on O'Brien's Flickr photostream.
Photo Credit both photos of the corner of High St. and New England Ave. are the property of Don O'Brien, he has licensed them with a Creative Commons license which allows their use here. He has a great collection of Worthington, his home town. Many of his photos from the 1930s and 1940s. He is DOK1 on Flickr.
