Located in the Nationally Registered, former Montrose Masonic Temple, The Lark & Sparrow Historic Venue was designed in the Classical Revival style, the 1911 building is significant for its long association with the social history of the Masons and the City of Montrose. The building, with its monumental Tuscan columns, stone balcony, and shaped parapet, is the only fraternal lodge in the city done in the Classical Revival style. In use as a Masonic Lodge for nearly seven decades, the building was also the center of social activity, hosting a variety of formals, church services, and other social events over the years. The building is topped by a beautiful domed stained glass skylight that illuminates the former Lodge room.
In the process of a complete restoration project on the building, the new owners encountered the unexpected expense of restoring the massive stained glass skylight. Now completed as “The Lark & Sparrow – Historic Venue”, the entire community can enjoy an exceptional piece of Montrose history.
