Historic Mariposa Masonic Lodge
First we have a photo from the 1930's of the Masonic Lodge in Mariposa.
Then we have an animation showing proposed renovations to historical Masonic Lodge in Mariposa. The lower floor will be an office or retail space in the front, and restaurant space in the back.
The needed foundation improvements are nearing completion, giving the building a new lease on life. Additional structural improvements will make the building more useful, as well as improving resistance to earthquake, fire and water damage.
The building is owned by the Rural Media Arts and Eduction Project, which provides independent, educational, foreign, and other significant films to Mariposa County through the Sixth Street Cinema. They also provide a literacy project to young children, showing free films and giving free related books to children in the community.
