Yesterday, it was sunny and warm and the skies were bright blue with puffy white clouds, which cheered me quite a bit AFTER A MONTH OF RAIN.
Behold, Mr. Blue Sky…
Mr Blue Sky, please tell us why
You had to hide away for so long, sooo long
Where did we go wrong?
Anyway, Millersville Masonic Lodge appears to have been established in 1852, although I can’t swear to it, having not witnessed it myself. You’ll note TEMPLE is there on the facade, but online, it’s called a lodge. It has a lengthy historical record, but the tidbit I truly gleaned from this was:
To this day, 150 years later, no one at Millersville Lodge has been able to learn conclusively whether “Millersville” was named for Winpenny’s and other mills in the area, or as a variation possibly on “Millardsville”. It is known that William J. Millard Sr., the father of the Lodge’s first Worshipful Master, was named the village postmaster in 1844. Prior to 1838, the area was known as Brubaker’s Mill.
That’s neat for us locals.
The doors are tall. They’re raw wood. I have no idea how long they’ve been like that, or whether anyone plans to stain them or whatnot, but the building is fine enough that the doors look mighty as you drive by. No walking in this area. Too busy, no sidewalks, even the ducks fly here.
Check out those reflections…Mr Blue Sky…
I liked the stream of blue light. If you’re familiar with Masonic tradition, you can appreciate its significance. If not, you can look that up.
Nifty doors on a lovely building, captured on a pretty day.
