Notes
Survey number HABS OR-100
Building/structure dates: 1875 initial construction
Significance: The Masonic Building occupies the site of the former Eldorado Saloon, a building that stood on the corner of Oregon and California Streets as early as 1853, when Kenny and Appler sold "the House known as the Eldorado" to William Burke. Burke evidently rebuilt the structure, for in 1854 -- when selling it to Sutton Miller -- he referred to the "building built by me in this place," known as the Eldorado Saloon. The Eldorado housed a number of other enterprises as well as the saloon: George Schumpf opened his first barber shop in the building in 1872, and E. Jacobs had his tailor shop there. When the Eldorado burned in 1874, the owner, Patrick McMannus, sold the property to the Masonic Lodge. In 1875 the Masons completed construction of a two-story brick building on the site.
