Context/Comments
The building was built as the second branch of Hancock Bank. In 1942 it was sold to the Masonic lodge, who used the upper story as a lodge hall and rented the lower story for use as a post office (until 1960) and later as a library. The building was rehabilitated about 1998 for commercial use. [local historical marker]
