Knights of Phythias Hall

Contributed by Abbot Historical Society

Description

This hall was built and used by the Mt. Kineo Masonic Lodge until 1889 when it was sold to H.F. Barber for $350.00. In July of 1898 the Juanita Lodge #122, Knights Of Phythias was formed and the members purchased the hall from Mr. Barber, using it as a meeting place and it became commonly known as the K of P Hall. In years since that purchase the downstairs has been used by the Grange, as a classroom, Grand Army of the Republic meeting room. In 1921 the woman formed a Sisterhood of Phythians and they used the hall for meetings and social functions until giving ownership to the Abbot Historical Society in 1998 to be used as a Museum.
