Significance: One of first buildings to break with the simple architectural style of Quaker Nantucket and include extensive Federal style decoration. The Masonic Hall, built about 1805, was one of the first buildings on the island with elaborate classic detail. As built, there were five bays with the main entry in the center, probably shops on either side, and a large hall on the second floor. In 1875 the two bays to the west of the entry were taken down and a house built where they had stood.
