Notes
Survey number HABS NC-268
Building/structure dates: 1823 initial construction
Significance: Eagle Lodge No. 19, A. F. & A. M., chartered in 1971, built the building had has always occupied it. The site is one of the town's most historic bits of ground. On or very nearly on the site of the present Masonic Hall stood the notorious Edmund Fanning's House, cut from its sills by the Regulators in the uprising of Sept. 25, 1770. Fanning's house and lot was the target for much Regulator activity. When the Masonic Hall was built in 1823, it served as the town's lecture hall, concert hall, and auditorium for decades, housing all manner of civic activity. A notable occasion was the dinner on Sept. 7, 1944, following the laying of the cornerstones for the Old Courthouse; the Hall was used for concerts by the Nash and Kollock school; and as a center for aid of all kinds during the Civil War.
