Pythian Castle Hall - Bennett’S Office Supply

Add to plan Remove from plan

After more than 20 years of meeting in rented halls, the local Knights of Pythias lodge purchased this lot on the southwest corner of the Square in 1900. They erected a one-story building in 1902 that was rented for commercial use. A second floor was added in 1913 to serve as a permanent lodge meeting hall. Architectural plans by C. W. Camp included a crenellated cornice and a cove for a life-sized knight in armor fashioned from metal by a local lodge member. The knight’s shield bears the letters “F” for friendship, “B” for benevolence, and “C” for charity. Bennett’s Office Supply has occupied the first floor since 1977.
