The Masonic Building, also called the Burrows Block, Bank Block, and Masonic Temple stands on the public square in Osceola, Iowa, United States. It was constructed by banker A.H. Burrows in 1872. The upper stories of this Italianate building were used by Osceola Lodge No. 77 of the Ancient Free & Accepted Masons, and the main floor was a bank and hardware store. This building has been placed on Preservation Iowa’s Most Endangered list because of its poor repair and lack of preservation plan.[2] [3] It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[1]
