Rural Lodge

[click image to enlarge]

This classical revival style building was designed by J. William Beal Sons who had previously designed such outstanding Quincy buildings as the Adams Building, 1342-68 Hancock Street and the Bethany Church. This architectural gem was built in 1926, for a sum of $235,000. This quasi-public building serves as a Masonic Temple.

What an interesting building and set off beautifully by the brilliant blue sky.

There's a skateboarding fiasco just waiting to happen on those steps.

Very grand. I like the collumns.

It looks solidly built. Softened by the autumn leaves and the beautiful blue sky.

It IS an impressive building - you should just see inside!
