Cecil M. Hickman writes that this building was built and owned buy the Girard Masonic Lodge #317 until late 1950’s or early 60’s. The members were transferred to the Sardis Masonic Lodge and the building and land sold to Earl Clifton (Tippy) Hickman & his Aunt Miss Marion Hickman. Tippy installed the door on the right hand side in order to place his excess 1949 & 1950 Fords and extra parts, one of several warehouses he had full of restored 49 & 50 Ford (abt 20) cars & parts. Tippy also refurbished old John Deere Tractors, he had a one cylinder that ran as well as the day it was bought. I don’t know what happened to the furniture used by the lodge upstairs.
