#ThursdayDoors — Return to Millersville Masonic



In May, I swung by the Millersville Masonic Temple to snap what I thought would be great doors.
I found these unfinished doors.


Comments followed the idea that they were temporary. I said I’d share any changes.

It turns out, they were KINDA temporary.
They are now painted.


I think we can all agree this is better.
I think a lot of us are still disappointed.

    Well you are correct. I am disappointed. I wonder why they replaced the other doors? Why the cheap doors? Usually Masonic Lodges are better heeled than that. Well I guess I will never know. I am not too happy with the color either.

      I know. Ugh. I don’t suppose you recall what they USTA look like? I sure don’t. Traffic so crazy over there, I can barely catch a glimpse!

        I sure don’t. I went to the all knowing Google and all I got was a picture with what appeared to be unfinished wood doors like the ones you took. I also found some pics of the old Lodge circa 1920. Oh and I learned they changed from candle to kerosene lights around 1874, It cost $47.65

    Such a beautiful building, and those are the doors? Disappointed is right!

    I feel like we are the unofficial Door Police (official status is still pending, but I’m sure it will be recognized very soon).

    I think a stern letter of rebuke is required. I mean, really! Do they have no pride?!

      I had made comment to Dan once that we act like we’re the Door Police and he informed me we ARE the Door Police, so maybe we should get some stationery printed up for all the official letters of rebuke.
      Also, tsk, tsk, tsk.
      I should think they could get some money from the Scottish Rite Cathedral and at least get some nice wood. LOL
      I’m no door snob, but I mean, REALLY! 😛

    Not impressed. Seems like these Masons need to have another meeting, then raid the coffers to buy a set of doors more fitting to the character of the building. In a different color, please.

    Let’s hope that they are still temporary but that they deserved a coat of paint before winter sets in. Go back again in June 🙂

    I admit they’re aren’t the nicest doors I’ve seen, but I don’t think they’re so bad.

    They look as if they belong somewhere else, not on this nice building.

    I’m with Dan; I bet these are still temporary while they’re having some real kick-ass fancy-pants ones made in some exotic workshop somewhere.
    Maybe I’m wrong but I don’t want to believe that this is as good as it gets 😉

    I’m with Norm and Dan. They might have painted them so they wouldn’t look temporary , even though they were. Kind of a letdown, though.

  11. It is a nice shade of green and the door pulls look like nice hardware!

  12. Seriously, I think they could have done better with almost anything! Feel free to pass that on to them. I’ll donate one of my Colmar doors, the one you like. 🙂

    Yeah, at least the hardware is nice. The hardware should totally go on strike until they get doors worthy of them.

  15. As a conservator fo objects I have a few things to say about the Masonic’s inability to take care of their STUFF, but will let it go at that. Good story, doors, however, that should be on a shed.

  16. The building looks impressive but is let down by those naff doors! 🙂

  17. Maybe its a temporary, temporary door; I think they must have read your earlier blog and thought a bit of color might get you off their backs 😉

    Thanks, Joey! I liked the unique rectangle with unique brick work above the top windows. So extraordinary in its choice of changing the inside bricks like they are a separate special box, even for cream stone bricks to emphasize them. Going back to a place brings out new details to view. . . 1852 is a long time ago.
