726 Main Street Masonic Doric Lodge #83
This building was completed in 1891 to serve as home for the Eudora branch of the Ancient Order of United Workers (Lodge #112). The Eudora branch of the Ancient Free and Accepted Masons (Doric Lodge #83) started to meet at this location in the 1890's and eventually assumed ownership of the building. The Masons met on the second floor while renting the first floor to various businesses over the years, including barber shops and restaurants.
