Known historically as the Peery Pharmacy and Masonic Lodge Hall, this Italianate commercial building is located at a prominent corner in downtown Scio. The building is believed to have been constructed by Jackson Bilyeu, who sold the second story to Scio Lodge No. 39, Ancient Free and Accepted Masons, in 1902. The Masons occupied the building until 1932. After the Second World War, a Veterans of Foreign Wars post met here for a time. The ground floor was sold to druggist E.C. Peery in 1906, after Peery's burned in a fire earlier that year. Peery sold the business in 1918 to Percy and Dean Schrunk, a father and son who operated a pharmacy here until 1997. Today the building is occupied by a veterinarian.
