Masonic LodgeSuffield’s urban redevelopment project was in full swing 46 years ago this month as the old Luther Loomis house embarked on a short journey. The building was to be relocated from North Main Street at the corner of Bridge Street a short distance east to continue as the local Masonic Lodge. Here it is shown during the first of two interruptions in the trip, when the chimney weight posed a problem. The second interruption came when one of the mover’s dollies broke down on Bridge Street. The State Highway Department was not amused, but traffic could be detoured through the new Suffield Village parking lot behind the new First National Bank, seen at the right, above.
