The Hamilton Masonic Lodge is a historic brick building built in 1873, located in Hamilton, Virginia. Built in the Italianate style, it historically served as a Masonic meeting hall and (until the 1920s) as a school for grades 1−12.[3]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1999.[1]

No Masonic lodges meet in the building today, and its original 1873-dated cornerstone was (as of the 1999 NRHP-listing) on display at another Masonic lodge building several miles away.[3]
