The home of Douglas Lodge #12 lies in the historic town of Genoa, Nevada, which is said to be the oldest continuously-inhabited town in the state.
This building was first occupied by the lodge in 1873, with the lower story set aside for business rental, and the upper floor exclusively for Masonic use.
As you can see by the sign, Douglas 12 was chartered by the Grand Lodge of Nevada in September of 1868 ... and has enjoyed many good years since then! This beautiful building, in its picturesque setting, has been "a star" in several motion pictures ... from looking at the building, with the backdrop behind it, is there any guess as to the reason?
