History of Rock Springs Masonic Temple

Rock Springs Lodge 12, AF&AM, was chartered on December 3, 1889 by the Grand Lodge of Wyoming. This lodge of Masons initially met in the W. H. Mellor Building at 318 South Front Street, in Rock Springs, Wyoming. In 1911 a site was obtained for a new Masonic Temple. Bonds were sold in the amount of $25,000, and work on the building was started. The Temple was finished in late 1912, and the first meeting of Rock Springs Lodge 12 in their new building was in January 1913.[1]

In 1947 a fire occurred in the Temple. The damage totaled about $6,000, the entire amount being covered by insurance.[1]
