In 1866, local men felt a need for fraternal organization. They formed a Mason Lodge, and it was chartered as Midldleground Lodge No. 267, F&AM. They used a two-story, wooden building just north of Ebenezer Baptist Church (located north of Lumber Bridge). In 1886, the local Masons were numerous enough that, they decided to form a new lodge in the town. It was chartered as Philadelphia Lodge No. 73. They built a two-story frame building on the east side of Caswell Street in 1889. The first story was used as a school house, and the second story was used as the lodge. In 1914, the lodge's present building was constructed. They kept the name Philadelphia Lodge over the years; the lodge is still active in the community.
