New Career for an Old Building

Record #:
St. John's Lodge, also known as St. John's Tavern, was the first Masonic building erected in the state of North Carolina. Utilized for decades of meetings as well as celebrations, St. John's Tavern was eventually neglected, vandalized, and left derelict. Donated by Henry Bacon MaKoy and James Hasell McKoy, to the newly established, St. John's Art Gallery, Inc., of Wilmington, St. John's Tavern will become St. John's Art Gallery, and will serve as a school for those interested in allied arts.
