Mason's Hall on Franklin Street in Richmond Virginia is the oldest Masonic building in the US built specifically as a Masonic meeting place. It has been used continuously and is the home of Richmond Lodge 10. Due to the destruction of the Civil War, it remains one of the few buildings surviving from 18th century Richmond. It would not be there today except for a Union General, a Freemason, who ordered it to be protected from fire.
