This building is a unique historical gem.  Built in 1785 – 1787, Masons’ Hall at 1807 East Franklin Street is the oldest 18th century frame building with large public spaces in Virginia.  The unusual heavy beam structure has been studied by architects and engineers. It is only open to the public a few times per year. Tour guides will be available and tour will leave every 30 minutes.

No reservations necessary, just stop on by!
