The Flowers Building is a historic building constructed in 1902 in Columbus, Georgia. Its Chicago style design is by architect T. Firth Lockwood. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980 as the Columbian Lodge No. 7 Free and Accepted Masons.[1]

The building was constructed in 1902 as meeting hall for local Masonic lodges (with commercial retail and office space rented on the floors not occupied by the Masons). The Masons sold the building to a Mr. Flowers in 1940.[2][3] Under his ownership it was used as an office building.[3] Miller & Gallman Developers later converted it into an apartment complex.[3]
