Marker Text Built about 1900 by C. W. Cotton, this structure was originally a one-story brick and stone building used for mercantile stores. A second story was added in 1913 to serve as a meeting place for The Hamilton Knights of Pythias Lodge. Following World War I, the building was used for numerous civic functions. Exhibiting simple Italianate detailing, the building features first floor shop windows, a central arched rear entry, and an awning across the front. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark-1987
