Lodge History

“The One Week Lodge”

On a Monday morning in March 1932, the first load of lumber was dumped on the site of the future Boulder City Lodge #37.

On Friday evening of that same week, Lodge was opened in that temple.

Cost of the building was approximately $2700, and ground rent (to the U.S. Government, since Boulder City was a ‘government town’ at that time) was $1.00 per year. Later, an addition, with kitchen and banquet room, was added.

Though not built in one week, the present building was also built by the hands of the members of Boulder City #37, from the concrete blocks to the roof trusses. The cornerstone was placed by M.W. Wilfred T. Voss – a Past Master of Boulder City #37 – in 1948. The building is shared with the Order of the Eastern Star, Rainbow Girls, Chapter, Council and Commandery of York Rite Masonry, and Shrine Club.
