 Overview
 Description
This site was an established Eastern Star (Lady Masons for lack of a better discription) home for their aged members. Pretty grand retirement/nursing home in its heyday. Also housed children until 1942.

Update: 04/22/2013: This last standing building, water feature and remaining parking lot was demolished over the weekend. There is literally nothing left now. Rumor has it, it was acquired by The Cowboys to build a new supplemental parking lot.
