constitute a part of the effect of the fraternal order on
Jacksonvill(e' egro history.
The most imposing of the structures i- the Color64d.
Uasonio Temple, a five-story briok building at Broad and
Dural Streete. This building was erected by the 1rand Lodge
of Maeone, who date their appearance in the local field to 18
1870. (a) .
It was built in 1912, when the order was headed by
Reverend John H. Dickerson. The order had been divided in
two separate parts at one point of its career, but by 191$ had
been united and waahat 14 said to be its most affluent period.
The structure ie vIlued at approximately three hundred
thousand dollars, sad house a large part of the Nero profee-
eional population of the olty. (23)
At about the same tiae that Masonry m e established
among re roes of Jacksonville, an order of Odd Fellows was set
up. (34) This order attracted large. numbers of men and women into
membership, and to house the order, they ereoted a large b6ild-
ing in 1893. when it was destroyed by fire in 1901, it wa imedi.
lately replaced by the ooMbined efforts of Wli1s GaMrrisol e, t
Andrewa and Daval lodges and the Household of Ruth, with a largeI
three-storied meeting hall at the Southeast corner of State ad "'A
Pearl'8treets, that has since oone to be one of the most used '
public auditoriues in the city. (25)
