Old Elks Lodge Building - Greenville

Old Elks Lodge Building - Greenville

I found this building in downtown Greenville and it looked like it was once a pretty important building. I was told by a guy that I met while taking photos that it was some sort of club for Cotton farmers and  I was able to find on google that it was built as Elks Lodge No. 148 and was called "Old Greenville Cotton Pickers Lodge". More info can be found here. It's unfortunate to see so many historic buildings abandoned and deteriorating but I love reading about their history and discovering what they were once used for. Apparently this building once contained some rare and expensive oil paintings in it's hayday. I encourage you to go visit Greenville and the delta.
