The Caddo Herald
February 4, 1921
Fire Friday Morning
Friday morning about 1 o’clock the old Masonic building on Main Street burned. It, with all contents was a total loss. It was occupied by Simmons & Cain as a corn mill. There was some insurance on the building, but none on the contents we understand. No one seems to know how the fire originated.
The building was one of the old landmarks of Caddo, having been erected some thirty years ago, had been used upstairs as a Masonic Hall, with other lodges meeting with them; was used as one of our public school buildings, as a store building in early days, and lately as a feed and meal store and mill. Much history is wrapped in that old building; many lessons have been taught there; many events occurred within its walls. Now all is ashes.
