Circa 1898

The fraternal order of the Knights of Pythias was founded in Washington, D.C. in 1864 as an organization dedicated to healing the wounds and hatred of the Civil War. The members of the local Springboro Lodge No. 574 built this meeting hall with a large upstairs room which was used for plays, Lyceum courses, church services, and graduation ceremonies for over 90 years. The first movie in Springboro was shown here. The business rooms on the main floor housed a variety of commercial concerns including a hardware store, pool hall, and furniture store. The local lodge disbanded in 1990.
