Hillsboro Masonic Lodge

I had an interesting conversation with an 85-year-old resident who had returned to Hillsboro after spending much of his career working on fishing boats on the Georgia coast; he noted that this was the Masonic lodge, but throughout its history had also served as a general store, and as the signage indicates, more recently a barbecue restaurant. I would guess it was built in the 1880s or 1890s but I’m not sure.

Seen from the North, on GA 11, coming from Monticello.

This now serves as the Hillsboro community center. It’s a wonderful preservation of a typical early-20th-centry rural school house.
