Summary: Maintenance report
This brick masonry building of classical revival style, built in the early 1900's, has remained relatively the same except for some minor changes to the interior, and presently is suffering from lack of maintenance to the exterior brick surface. There are badly eroded portions of brick which () < soft and vulnerable to further damage. Other serious damage includes rusting of the metal eaves and water damage from lack of proper drainage. The entire building is in a relatively good state of repair for its age.

HISTORY
MASONIC TEMPLE
215 NORTH MAIN STREET, GAINESVILLE FLORIDA
ARC 5810
UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA COLLEGE OF ARCHITECTURE


MASONIC TEMPLE
215 NORTH MAIN STREET, GAINESVILLE FLORIDA
In 1903, the Society of Free Masons, Gainesville Lodge F.& A.M. #41 purchased the lot at the intersection of N.E. 2nd Ave. and Mainstreet from the first Episcopal Church. The existing structure on that parcel was moved to another site in town.
The building committee, consisting of such prominent members as W.R. Thomas, W.T. Shands Lee Graham, names which now identify several buildings and institutions in the community, in charge of procurr^ng suitable plans and specifications for the building of a Masonic Temple, decided upon a plan submitted by architect J.H.W. Hawkins of Jacksonville. The plans called for a building to be 40x80 feet and with materials consisting of pressed sand limestone brick, composition stone trimmings and pillars, a tile roof and founda-
ARC 5810
UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA COLLEGE OF ARCHITECTURE
tions of cement.
The committee then advertised for sealed bids for the construction of the building as per plans and specifications. The bids were opened on May 21st,1908 and the contract awarded to the Eddins Manufacturing Co. for the sum of $12800.00. The committee also entered into a contract with the architect to take full charge of the building to its completion, at a cost of $600.00 plus a $10.00 stipend per trip for traveling expenses to and from Jacksonville.
On Wed. April 28th,1909 dedication ceremonies were held for the Masonic Temple. The ceremonies, presided over by Grand Master Louis C.Massey, consisted of the laying of the cornerstone and a parade which was witnessed by the largest local assemblage ever

ings facade were manufactured at a now defunct settlement called Campville, located between Citra and Orange Lake. John R. Eddins, a Mason and local lumberman, furnished all the wood (Heart Pine) for floor ing and woodwork.
The Gainesville Sun reported the structure was built at a cost of $25,000.00 while the furnishings, chairs and draperies will add another $5000.00 to the cost of the project.
The building has functioned as an assembly hall for the Masonic Order since its dedication, except for a period during the 1940's when the dining hall was converted into a sleeping hall for soldiers from Camp Blanding. The hall was filled with about. 30 double bunks for enlisted soldiers to occupy on

Saturday nights while on weekend passes. If there was not a bunk available, the soldier was given a blanket and could sleep in the Lodge Room.


INTERPRETATION
MASONIC TEMPLE
215 NORTH MAIN STREET, GAINESVILLE FLORIDA
ARC 5810
UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA COLLEGE OF ARCHITECTURE


INTERPRETATION
The Masonic Temple has changed and evolved very little since it was constructed so the job of interpretting it was relati/ly simple. The building is still being used for the same function it was designed for and is sfeH-l in the hands of the original owners. There have been only a few major changes on the interior and the exterior, so interpretation was minimal. We could not carry out any selective demolition to see what was beneath the surface of the building,- s-o that-"Bfli further reduced the complexity of the interpretation but also, regretfully, the potential accuracy.
This interpretation was carried out under the guidance and direction of Professor Blair Reeves, FAIA and Associate Professor Hershel Shepard, FAIA. We wish to express our appreciation to the Masons for allowing us to study their Temple and assisting us in our study. We also wish to acknowledge Roger Sherman, who in April 1986 wrote a report on "Architectural Preservation of the Masonic Temple" that was invaluable in providing data on the structure.


EXTERIOR INTERPRETATION
There have been very few changes on the exterior of the Masonic Temple since it was constructed in 1908-1909. Except for the east elevation the only changes that have been made are minor safty and maintenance work. The building as a whole is essentially as it was when it was built. When the Masonic Temple was dedicated an article about the event appeared in the local paper along with a picture of the new building. The Temple still looks the same now as it did then.
All of the major changes to the exterior of the building have taken place on the east elevation. This is the rear of the Masonic Temple and faces the center of the block where the changes do not draw as much attention as if they had occurred on another elevation.
When the Masonic Temple was built, a two story dwelling stood on the lot to the south where the municipal parking lot is now located. This house was not torn down until at least after 1928.

WEST ELEVATION
There have been only minor changes to the west elevation (the front) of the Masonic Temple since the building was built.
1. The ceiling of the porch has been replaced with a plywood ceiling, probably due to water damage. The plywood ceiling has also suffered severe water damage.
2. a pipe handrail was added to the center of the front steps for safety.
NORTH & SOUTH ELEVATIONS
The north and south elevations remain unchanged in the years since the building was constructed.




EAST ELEVATION
The east elevation or rear of the Masonic Temple has undergone the most transformation since the completion of the building in 1909. There supposedly was a portico on the rear of the building, over the rear door, when it was completed, but no evidence of such a structure remains.
1. The back steps and stoop are not original. As completed the building had interior steps in the back. In a major renovation, that could have occurred about the time of the Second World War, these interior steps were removed along with the portico over the rear door and a new exterior stoop and steps was constructed out of concrete blocks and concrete.
2. The metal fire stairs were added in thel950's to provide a second exit from the top floor. A window was altered to form a door into the lodge hall.
3. HVAC equipment was first added about 1957 and has been replaced at least once since then. The equipment is located between the rear door and the fire stairs and the air ducts enter the building through a former window.
4. Two windows that were broken in a hurricane are now boarded up with plywood.
5. Electrical and gas utilities were later additions to the building and enter from the rear.


INTERIOR INTERPRETATION
Since the Masonic Temple was built in 1908-1909,it has been owned by the Masons and used by them for their meetings. This continuous ownership and usage has meant that there have been very few changes in the interior of the building. Some changes have been made due to changes in technology. The building was originally fitted with gas lights which have been replaced by electric lights. The original coal fired boiler and radiators for heating have been replaced by a central air conditioning system. There has been some new partitions erected and some changes in the use of room but for a building that is 78 years old there has been remarkably little change.




FIRST FLOOR
The first floor of the Masonic Temple has a few changes that have made over the years.
1. The original flooring has been covered over in Room 100 and 111. The original boards running north and south can be seen near the doorway between Rooms 100 and"101.'
2. The original flooring has been covered overin Room 101. The boards ran north and south as in Room 100.
3. Room 102 was formed by building a partial-height wall around one corner of Room 101, and is used as a mechanical room for the HVAC equipment which is connected to the exterior equipment through a former window.
4. There is a covered hole in the wall where a stovepipe connected to a chimney. It must have served a wood or coal heater. Since the building had steam heat from a central boiler this heater must have been meant to provide heat
for Room 101 when just that room was in use so the large boiler would not have to be fired up. The chimney for this stove can be seen on the east elevation.
5. A 2 X 4 suspended ceiling is a modern addition in Room 103. The original ceiling above it is plaster. The original flooring has also been covered up. It probably consisted of 3-17 2" heart pine tongue and groove flooring running north and south like the rest of the first floor. The cabinets are not origi nal.
6. There use to be a wall which formed a hall from Room 100 to the rear door, and enclosed the kitchen. It was removed when the interior steps and the rear portico were removed.
7. Room 104 is original and not a later addition. It has the same type moulding around the door as the rest of the first floor and the same corner moulding protecting the outside corner as found elsewhere in the building.
8. The library was divided into two rooms by a partial height partition which forms Rooms 105 and 106. The original flooring still exists in this room.
9. There is a hole in the wall for a stovepipe. See number 4 above.
10. There was a screen door fitted into the door frame of Room 105 to keep out mosquitoes when the other doors of the building were left open for ventilation.
11. Room 107 was originally the cloak room, but was later converted into a women's restroom.


12. Rooms 108 and 109 are the men's restroom. The original flooring has been covered by a composition tile.




SECOND FLOOR
The second floor has changed even less than the first floor. All of the change has been limited to new finishes and mechanical systems.
1. A metal pipe handrail has been added rather crudely to the exterior of both flights of stairs in Room 208. Subsequent to this, a chair lift was added on the stairs since 1978. The treads of the stairs are covered with a vinyl material and have metal nosings attached that are not original.
2. A window each in Rooms 201 and 208 retain part of their original wooden Venetian blinds. Originally these blinds were probably in all of the second floor windows and possibly first floor windows of the Temple.
3. The original floor of Rooms 208 and 209 have been covered with the same type of material used on the treads of the stairs.
4. A lavatory has been added in the corner of Room 208 to provide water on the second floor.
5. The floor in Room 207 is carpeted; definitely a later addition.
6. The central area is covered by black and white tile. Without doing some demolition it is impossible to say if the material is original, if it use to cover a larger area or what type of flooring it might be covering up.
7. The blue carpet that covers most of Room 200 is very new. It shows very little wear and is probably only a few years old at most.
8. These stepped seating areas are covered with some sort of man made material. It is unclear whether it is original or a later addition.
9. Room 200 is painted a light blue. Peeling paint in places shows evidence that the original color was white or a light beige.
10. A wooden grille, centered high on the north wall of Room 200 was added when an attic fan was installed during the Second World War.


THE MASONIC TEMPLE
THE MASONIC TEMPLE, LODGE F. a A.M. NO. 41 OF THE SOCIETY OF FREE MASONS, LOCATED AT 2 N. MAIN ST., GAINESVILLE, FLORIDA, WAS DESIGNED BY ARCHITECT J.H.W. HAWKINS OF JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA, AND CONSTRUCTED BY THE EDDINS MANUFACTURING COMPANY IN 1908.
THIS STRUCTURE WITH ITS SYMMETRICAL FACADES, RAISED COLUMNED PORTICO ENTRY, ARCHED WINDOWS, AND DECORATIVE METAL CORNICE, IS A FINE EXAMPLE OF NEO-CLASSICAL ARCHITECTURE. THE BUILDING IS
OCCUPIED BY THE MASONIC ORDER.
THESE DRAWINGS WERE PART OF COURSE WORK OF THE PRESERVATION OPTION OF THE GRADUATE SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA. THE PROJECT WAS SUPERVISED BY PROFESSOR F. BLAIR REEVES FAIA AND ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR HERSCHEL SHEPARD FAIA. TEAM MEMBERS WERE TIMOTHY M. DODGE, MARK C. CURENTON, JEFFREY A. TURNER AND DONALD E. KINO.
