Georgetown's Old Masonic Building

. . . and its "onion dome." The Old Masonic Building, constructed in 1900, has quite a history. In addition to its intended purpose, it has served as a post office, and most recently the lower floors have housed restaurants (first Chinese, then two different Italian, and finally a restaurant and bar. . . the space is now sadly vacant), while the upper floors are used as offices.

The building is on the square, on the corner, with lovely views from the second story balcony (just beyond the trees). The dome is quite iconic!!!


  1. What a great Building Betty!...and a perfect seeing Georgetown, Texas through your eyes!

  2. My Dad will enjoy looking at this watercolor. He's 91 and has been a Mason for as long as I can remember. Nice work.
